Love Parks Week event in Chichester

Celebrate one of the Chichester District’s best-loved parks – Bishop’s Palace Gardens – at a free event during national Love Parks Week.

An afternoon of activities for all ages will be held at the gardens in Chichester on Wednesday, July 25 from 12pm to 5pm.

Activities include: children’s activities; performances from the Chichester Folk Song Club; exhibition of sculptures by local artists Lou Johns and Roger Parkes; and visitors can bag a bargain at the plant sale organised by the Friends of the gardens. Entry is free, so bring a picnic and enjoy an afternoon of entertainment and relaxation.

Councillor Eileen Lintill, the Chichester District Council’s cabinet member for leisure, wellbeing and community services, said: “Bishop’s Palace Gardens is one of Chichester’s treasures. So come and celebrate the gardens and enjoy the free activities on offer.

“Chichester’s parks can be enjoyed all year round. They are free to visit and provide opportunities to improve your health, enjoy nature, relax and unwind as well as to play and have fun.”
