We want to see our protected spaces being used as much as possible and community events are a great way to bring people together. Our annual Have a Field Day is a good example of this, and it’s open to all parks and green spaces, not just those protected with us.

We also recognise that local authorities are under increasing pressure in terms of funding their parks and green spaces and larger events are a way of generating income to help support these valuable assets. Provided ongoing use of the site isn’t adversely affected, the majority of events are perfectly acceptable on sites protected with us so if you are unhappy about a particular event you should contact the landowner in the first instance.
