Stoke-on-Trent boasts a beautiful variety of urban parks, ranging from local playgrounds and green spaces to the large historic parks of Burslem, Fenton, Hanley, Longton, and Tunstall and the pioneering Central Forest Park.
Three Parks Liaison Officers cover parks and open spaces across the city, with another funded to work in Burslem Park as part of its £2m restoration.
Their job is to work alongside friends’ groups and the community sector and they aim to promote:
- urban parks as places for learning outside the classroom;
- volunteer involvement in urban parks;
- the use of parks for activities and events; and
- making park use as enjoyable as possible for everyone.
