About World Parks Week

World Parks Week is an opportunity to celebrate our parks and green spaces.

The week is organised to:

  • Communicate the critical importance of parks in a global context
  • Promote best practice by learning from other parks services
  • Encourage people to enjoy their local park and appreciate the importance of green space

World Urban Parks previously organised a World Parks Day in September.
