Enveco celebrates Love Parks Week

Love Parks Week returns from 28 July to 6 August 2023

Enveco NW Environmental Services is proud to shout out about the wonderful 96 parks, green and open spaces within Blackpool, which their Grounds maintenance team maintain on behalf of Blackpool Council.

These spaces range from pocket parks to the regionally significant grade II listed Stanley Park – Along with sports pitches, playgrounds, ecological sites, all-weather play services, and highway verges.

Enveco’s Grounds Maintenance, Parks & Green Open Space Manager, said

“We have a small, yet committed team of skilled grounds maintenance operatives and gardeners who take pride in the maintenance of the Parks & Green Open Spaces across the Borough. Our team is supported in a shared goal of maintaining the Parks & Green Open spaces such as the award-winning Grade II Listed Stanley Park – alongside our Council partners and highly valued and committed Friends Groups and volunteers”.

It’s true that Blackpool has some beautiful parks and green open spaces, which Enveco takes pride in taking care of for Blackpool residents and visitors to enjoy.

According to mind.org spending time in nature has many physical and mental benefits such as:

  • improves your mood
  • reduces feelings of stress or anger
  • helps you take time out and feel more relaxed
  • improves your physical health
  • improves your confidence and self-esteem
  • helps you be more active
  • helps you meet and get to know new people
  • connects you to your local community
  • reduces loneliness
  • helps you feel more connected to nature

Our parks offer so much to us, and not only is being in nature proven to be good for you, but it’s a great space for children, and our pets to explore, have buckets of fun, grow, and bond. So, Love Parks Week is important to Enveco and they encourage everyone to celebrate and support the efforts of volunteers and workers up and down the country to maintain and protect our green spaces.
