Parks Festive Fortnight

  • Jul

To celebrate Love Parks Week (13 – 20 July) and the first-ever London National Park City Week (21 – 29 July) we’re hosting a fantastic range of activities and events in our parks and green spaces.

Whether you want to get active, learn about nature as a family, picnic with friends or just sit back and enjoy the moment, you’ll find plenty to do in the borough’s lovely parks and green spaces.

With many people in Islington living no more than a walk away, everyone can get out and make the most of their favourite place this Summer

By the way, we work hard to look after our parks and green spaces, so please treat them with respect and do your bit to keep them looking great and enjoyable for everyone.

And we’ve got lots more going on after July’s Festive Fortnight.

So, go on, make the most of Summer and discover our events.
