Parks, gardens and open spaces, perfectly situated for a quick stroll before dark or early in the morning, come into their own in summer. Tell us about your favourites
Share your favourite free-to-enter gardens, parks and other green spaces around the UK. They may have beautifully kept flower beds, ancient woodland, rewilded wildflower meadows or even swimming lakes. They can be in urban areas, offering relaxation and recreation to commuters and a haven for fauna and flora, or further afield.
Your favourite green space may just be a quiet wood or country park noted for its birdlife, or it could feature a cafe, outdoor gym facilities and rowing boats. Please give exact locations, websites and details of any useful facilities and interesting buildings. Remember, it’s your personal experience that counts – not the fame of the location.
