We have changed our name to Love Leeds Parks!
The rebrand follows feedback from businesses and park users that they want to support public green space in Leeds in different ways, not just by making donations to a city-wide fund.
The Leeds Parks Fund will remain under our umbrella as a community grants round, managed by Leeds Community Foundation, and will be key to harnessing broad community support for public green space.
But we also plan to support other park projects of strategic significance for the city, and will be making further announcements in relation to this in the coming months.
The feedback was given by Leeds residents and business leaders who completed surveys and took part in focus groups organised by the University of Leeds. The research was used to inform our report published last year, Charitable Giving to Parks and Green Spaces.
The new name was well received when tested at a number of venues in the run up to Christmas with the launch of our Love Leeds Parks merchandise.
