Parks People

The quality of a park, garden or open space relies on the dedication and passion of the people managing and tending them, whether professional or volunteers. Their work ranges from basic semi-skilled tidying, to more skilled and specialist expertise, requiring deep understanding of plants, soils, biodiversity, ecology, design, sports turf, machinery amongst many other subjects. Their skills, efforts and  achievements should be recognised and celebrated by employers and visitors to any well-managed parks and gardens wherever they are.
