East Herts Council are hosting two FREE family fun events at Southern Country Park in Bishop’s Stortford and Pishiobury Park in Sawbridgeworth to celebrate #LoveParksWeek.

The fun will begin at Southern Country Park on 26 July (12noon to 3pm) with activities that include a treasure trail, dog show, tug of war and demonstrations from Dogability.  There will also be the chance to try fishing.  

Pishiobury Park’s event is on 28 July (12noon to 3pm) with plenty of things to get involved with including a bug hunt and nature trail, craft activities and the chance to meet the graziers who manage the cattle that graze the park.

Visitors will also have the chance to meet the local police and fire brigade, who may bring a fire engine along if they can.  The East Herts Healthy Hub team have some fun activities planned for their stall and both the Friends of Southern Country Park and Friends of Pishiobury Park will be on hand with lots of information about the work they do to help maintain these picturesque open spaces in East Herts.

Speaking about the events, Executive Member for Wellbeing at East Herts Council, Eric Buckmaster, said:

“Here in East Herts we have some amazing parks and open spaces on our doorstep and Love Parks Week is all about celebrating the great outdoors and giving residents an opportunity to come together and spend time with family and friends.

“For many, these events will be taking place at the start of the school summer holidays and are an ideal way to entertain children at an organised event, outside in the fresh air, with plenty of free activities to get involved with.

The events are free to get into and everyone is welcome.  Further details, including the timings of the various planned activities taking place are on the website

So why not prepare your picnic, fill up the water bottles and head along to one, or both, of these fun packed events for some free family fun.
