The final Love Parks Wandsworth event was a party for the many friends’ groups, management advisory committees (MACs), community organisations and others who help protect the borough’s green spaces.
Each of the friends’ groups and MACs was presented with a sapling at the event to thank them for their help making Love Parks a success.
The summer campaign celebrated the importance of parks and green spaces and their positive impact and led to many people discovering their local park for the first time.
“It really has been a fabulous summer to remember and installed a great feel good factor in the borough,” said Councillor Steffi Sutters, cabinet member for community services and open spaces.
We are constantly investing in our parks and, as a result, we are proud to have some of the most beautiful green spaces in London.
“So, I am very pleased that so many people of all ages have seen for themselves what Wandsworth has to offer and engaged in the many events and activities or just gone for a stroll in their local park.
“And I’d especially link to thank all the friends’ groups, MACs and community groups who do so much to protect our green spaces.
We’re keen to stay in close contact with all of them, and we’re willing to help any group or individual who would like to set one up.”
