As of this year 2019, London is set to become the first National Park City, thanks to the backing of the mayor of London, members of the London assembly and many of the city’s councilors. With an expanse of 3000 parks, 1600 sites of importance for nature conservation, 4 National Nature Reserves and 3.8 million gardens, London and its surrounding counties really do have a lot to offer in terms of park beauty. As communities and individual ambassadors come together to drive a conscious effort to create a cleaner environment, plus our enthusiasm to encourage plant life and wildlife to flourish, we really can make London the first National Park City. You can find out more about the National Park City scheme here – http://www.nationalparkcity.london
This February half term we are encouraging all local residents, friends of Pistachios in the Park and visitors to London and Surrey, with or without children, to embrace the fresh air and enjoy their local park or take an exploration further afield to a park in another borough.
All of our London and Surrey parks have so much to offer, so embrace their natural beauty, have some active fun at the play area and why not make a day of it? You can drop in to one of our 9 London and Surrey cafes for a home cooked meal, or a drink and a light snack. Our Pistachios in the Park cafés offer a warm and friendly welcome and have something to offer every one, of all ages and tastes.
To add in some extra fun this February half term, you can download and print our colouring-in pictures. See if your younger ones can spot some wildlife in and around our Pistachios in the Park, park areas? There are 3 different sheets to download – Birds, Animals and Trees & Shrubs.
Happy Half Term!
