Running from 28th July to 6th August, Love Parks Week is an annual initiative by ‘Keep Britain Tidy’ that applauds and supports the commendable efforts of volunteers and council officers nationwide in preserving and safeguarding our cherished green havens.
Our town boasts a collection of fantastic parks, each with its unique charm, ranging from the serene Abney Park to the tranquil Etherow Park. These green gems provide the perfect setting to unwind with friends and stay active, all while reveling in nature’s splendor.
Notably, last month witnessed the refurbishment and reopening of the tennis courts at Torkington Park, Cale Green, Heaton Moor, and North Reddish Park, providing even more opportunities for recreation and enjoyment.
Moreover, ongoing renovation endeavors at Alexandra Park, Bredbury Recreation Ground, and Great Moor Park are well underway and are scheduled to be completed by the end of Love Parks Week. These improvements will further enhance the beauty and functionality of these cherished spaces.
Beyond merely relishing our borough’s lush landscapes, the parks have been blessed with vibrant volunteer groups dedicated to enhancing these areas for the benefit of all. These enthusiastic individuals generously contribute their life skills and knowledge to support these green oases, and they are always on the lookout for fresh helping hands to join their ranks.
So, let’s come together and make our voices heard, expressing the love and admiration we have for Stockport’s stunning parks. As we cherish these green treasures, let us also appreciate the hard work of our dedicated volunteers and council officers in safeguarding these natural wonders for generations to come. Together, we ensure that our parks remain thriving havens for relaxation, recreation, and community spirit.
