People across Cambridgeshire can enjoy a host of events at a local park this bank holiday weekend (August 26-29).

There will be numerous activities, from a family fun day to a free outdoor concert, and to make it easier to plan where to go, the new Cambs Open Space website has an ‘events’ page listing many of the events taking place, as well as a list of all local parks: cambsopenspace.co.uk/events.

The website has been produced by the Cambridgeshire and Peterborough Future Parks Project which is encouraging people to make the most of their green spaces. Since its launch in April, the website has continued to grow and now features new entries including Trumpington Recreation Ground and Great Shelford Recreation Ground.

Cllr Lorna Dupré, chair of the Environment and Green Investment Committee at Cambridgeshire County Council, said: “We have so many delightful parks across the county with brilliant facilities, making them the perfect places to explore.

“I would urge people over the bank holiday to enjoy these wonderful green spaces – I know from my personal experience how refreshed I feel after a visit to the park.”

Activities taking place over the bank holiday include wellbeing walks at Nightingale Recreation Ground in Cambridge, a family fun day at Sapley Playing Fields in Huntingdon on the Saturday from 11am, and a free concert at Ely Bandstand, Jubilee Gardens, on the same day from 2pm to 4pm.

This will feature the King Edward Macclesfield Concert Band performing easy-listening classics from the musicals, film themes, and popular jazz and swing numbers.
