Parks and Open Spaces
"Public space is all around us, a vital part of everyday life. The streets we pass through, the places where children play, or where we encounter nature and wild life; the local parks in which we enjoy sports, walk the dog and sit at lunchtime; or simply somewhere quiet to get away for a moment from the bustle of a busy daily life.In other words, public space is our open-space living room, our outdoor leisure centre."
Come and enjoy our park and open spaces areas at Friary Gardens for a pleasant relaxing visit.
Although the Richmondshire District is blessed with magnificent landscapes, well maintained parks and open spaces are of vital importance to the everyday life and well-being of local people. They also have a bearing on how visitors view the area as a place to live and work. Richmondshire District Council is committed to safe-guarding and maintaining it's major assets, of which parks and open spaces are a key element for their recreational, natural and cultural qualities.
The local authority provides a high standard of horticultural maintenance. Gardening teams regularly visit sites to ensure that high standards are maintained at district and local parks. Please click here
