The Council's Ranger Service manages the parks and open spaces for everyone to enjoy. The Rangers carry out practical conservation work and environmental education in addition to organising events and activities.
The Rangers regularly patrol all of our parks and open spaces. These patrols help them to monitor any maintenance problems and promote an effective and efficient response to issues.
The presence of Rangers in their familiar and distinctive uniform can be a very reassuring sight for visitors to the Burnley's parks. Knowing that there is someone there to answer your questions, or help to solve any problems encourages visitors to venture out and visit sites they are not familiar with.
The Rangers will enforce bylaws, including issuing fixed penalty notices for littering and dog fouling offences but they are not a security service and will contact the Police for more serious offences.
Patrolling also gives the Rangers the opportunity to keep a protective eye on our local wildlife. Being aware of what is present and where it is located helps us to protect it.
