Parks and Open Spaces - Information and Advice

The Harrogate district has an abundance of green space. A wide variety of parks, gardens and open spaces offer landscaped areas, floral beds, nature trails or green open space for relaxation or play. Our parks also offer a range of events and activities,  including Knaresborough Bed Race which starts from Conyngham Hall, Remembrance Sunday Parades, The Big Picnic and the ever-popular annual Bonfire on The Stray in November.  All the council managed parks within the district are freely accessible all year round.

Smoke Free Playgrounds Survey

 

Recently there have been a number of concerns raised regarding smoking within the vicinity of children's outdoor play areas. Currently there is no legislation to enforce a smoking ban, however we would like your views. 

The outcome of this survey will help us decide whether to introduce smoke free measures to discourage smoking within the perimeter of these play areas. 

Please complete the Smoke Free Playgrounds Survey by 4.00pm on November 14th 2014.
