World Parks Week is a celebration of the vital role parks and open spaces play in creating liveable cities and thriving communities. The week is organised to:
- Communicate the critical importance of parks in a global context
- Promote best practices by learning from other parks services
- Encourage people to enjoy nature and appreciate the importance of green space while maintaining physical distancing
World Parks Week does the important work of acknowledging those green spaces reserved for human enjoyment and recreation, or for the protection of wildlife or natural habitats.
In support of this, PALRC acknowledges and applaudes all those connected with our protected areas network, and those working for the effective management of the world’s places of natural, cultural and community significance.
Park Week 2020 runs from April 25 – May 3
