Next week marks Love Parks Week across the UK and East Cambridgeshire District Council is celebrating by unveiling a new addition to the play area at Ely Country Park.

Work is currently underway on a new multi-play ship, which is expected to open during Love Parks Week, which runs from July 14 to 23.

There have also been two walks created to allow people to explore the city. These circular walks which are 1.1 and 1.6 miles long, encompass Jubilee Gardens, Ely Country Park and Ely Park.

Councillor David Ambrose Smith said: “Love Parks Week is a fantastic opportunity to get residents out and about exploring the best of East Cambridgeshire.

“We’re very excited to be marking the week with the big reveal of our multi-play ship and hope that this, alongside our suggested walking routes will encourage children and adults to make the most of their local area.”
