About Us

Love Leeds Parks is a registered charity and forms part of a growing network of UK parks foundations. We support enhancements to public parks and green spaces in Leeds, for the benefit of all residents and visitors to the city.

Though Friends’ groups continue to play an important role in caring for public green spaces in Leeds, we are proud to be the first initiative to generate support and funding for parks city-wide.

We work closely with Leeds City Council who manage much of the public green space in Leeds, and the Leeds Parks and Green Spaces Forum which acts as a voice for green space. Love Leeds Parks does not manage parks or fund routine park maintenance work.

The importance of parks

Parks and green spaces benefit people, wildlife and the environment. They are much-loved and
vital community spaces which are essential to life quality in our growing city region.

 

 

What we support

We raise awareness about the wide ranging benefits of parks, promote community engagement in urban green spaces and generate donations for park improvement projects.

The projects we fund are community focused and add value to public green space, as well as prioritising parks in deprived areas.

“There are over 600 parks, woodlands and other green spaces in Leeds. It’s vital that all of us take our part in looking after them.”  Watch our video to learn more.
