Things to do

What can I do and where can I do it?

Picnics and BBQs

We welcome the use of our Parks, Gardens and Open Spaces as a place for friends and family to picnic in. It is appreciated that sometimes you may also wish to bring a BBQ to one of our Parks or Open Spaces – especially in the rare occasion that the sun comes out! Find out more here


Whether it’s one of our 8 major parks or one of the many areas of green space in and around our settlements, these open spaces are managed for the enjoyment of residents and visitors, as well as for the variety of wildlife that depend on them.
