Burnley Council owns and manages over 550 hectares of parks and greenspaces across the borough including six Green Flag parks, which offer a wide range of recreation from beautifully landscaped gardens and boating lakes, bowling greens to skate parks, ballcourts and playgrounds.
Our parks and greenspaces provide visitors and residents with lots to see and do including playgrounds, cafes, gardens, historical landscapes, sports facilities, woodlands and, perhaps most importantly, the chance to enjoy being in a natural environment and enjoy contact with nature. Burnley's parks are great for both walking and exploring.
The Green Spaces team are also responsible for grass cutting and tree work in the borough. The team also manages sports pitches, bowling greens and tennis courts together with 55 childrens playgrounds, 22 floodlit ball courts, skate parks and more.
We work in partnership with a range of organisations, from the local Friends of the Parks groups, to Burnley's award winning Permaculture Project Offshoots.

If you have any special needs or access requirements in order to use and enjoy your parks in Burnley, please contact the Green Spaces team to talk about these.
