“Every effort is made to maintain high standards on our parks and play areas. A good example of this is the recently opened Regents Park Play Area, in Branston, as well as the In Bloom awards which is recognition of all that hard work involved in the parks and open spaces.

Parks provide local people with the opportunity to relax and unwind, providing a place for improving physical and mental well being. Given the local and national health problems around mental health and obesity the provision of a range of open spaces remains a council priority.”
