Forty Hall has unveiled a bumper day of fun for Love Parks Week
Forty Hall has unveiled a bumper day of fun for Love Parks Week, which will include archaeological digs, fun wildlife trails and various taster sessions. The special one-day event is being held on Saturday 22 July, from 12- 5pm.
Love Parks Week, which runs between 14 July and 23 August, is a national campaign by Keep Britain Tidy to encourage people to spend more time in their local park. Enfield Council is encouraging residents to get out and about and see what the borough's 124 open spaces can offer them, their friends and family.
The event at Forty Hall is free and has lots of activities to get involved with, interesting people to meet and new trails to explore.
Some of the activities taking place on the day include the annual archaeological dig at the site of Elsyng Palace, there is also an interactive park trail and craft workshops.
Enfield Council's Cabinet Member for Environment, Cllr Daniel Anderson, said: "Love Parks Week is a great opportunity to find out more about the fantastic facilities and settings our parks have to offer.
"Providing great quality open spaces provides huge benefits for the community, it helps promote the growth and sustainability of neighbourhoods and they provide fabulous free leisure facilities for people of all backgrounds.
“This year I'm really glad we have this special event, Love Forty Hall Park Day. It is a celebration of everything about Forty Hall Park, its heritage, wildlife and all the activities that go on here which help make it the vibrant community space that it is.
"There are also several other events taking place in the borough’s parks to celebrate the week, meaning that there is something for everyone, so why not get out and explore your local park?”
