World Parks Week

World Parks Week is an opportunity to celebrate our parks and green spaces. The week is organised to:

  • Communicate the critical importance of parks in a global context
  • Promote best practices by learning from other parks services
  • Encourage people to enjoy their local park and appreciate the importance of green space

World Parks Week was developed out of World Parks Day, which was held in the Fall. In 2017, World Urban Parks developed the event into a week and moved it to April/May. This way, we as a World Parks community can celebrate the week in our parks no matter what part of hemisphere of the world we call home.
