Adopt a place

Adopt a place

We want residents to take more opportunities to get fit and active in green spaces, and enjoy their local areas. Adopt a place enables community groups to maintain a local feature, a green space, or a whole street, by providing them with support, materials, and tools. You could also get to know your local parks or streets team and learn new skills.

With over 800 hectares of diverse parks and open spaces, ranging from meandering walks to small urban spaces, there are plenty of opportunities in the borough to take part. The Council wants people to be creative about adoption activities. Examples include:

  • Maintaining a flower bed
  • Watering trees & shrubs
  • Litter picking
  • Graffiti removal
  • Being the Council’s eyes and ears in the park
  • Planting & maintenance projects 
  • Raising funds for new park features 

Groups who could benefit from the Adopt a place scheme include schools, local businesses, neighbourhood associations, sports clubs or groups, youth groups, ‘friends of parks’, or nature enthusiasts.
