We are pleased to announce that The Parks Trust has been shortlisted four times in the 2018 Horticulture Week Custodian Awards.

This year was the first time we have entered the awards and we have been shortlisted in all four of the categories we entered.

The Parks Trust has been recognised in the Best Visitor Initiative category for our events programme; in the Best Urban Parks Team category; in the Best Volunteer Initiative category for our volunteer strategy; and in the Best Community Initiative category for our Youth Explorers offering.

David Foster, Chief Executive of The Parks Trust, commented: “It’s a real honour to be recognised by Horticulture Week for the work we carry out across the city.

“It is particularly meaningful as it demonstrates how broad our spectrum of work is and just how much we do for Milton Keynes; not only maintaining the parks to a good standard but also running a huge and diverse programme of events, working with volunteers and offering Outdoor Learning opportunities for people of all ages.

“We are very proud of our staff and volunteers and to be shortlisted for these awards is a true reflection of their commitment and achievements.”

The Horticulture Week Custodian Awards will be announced at a dedicated ceremony, to be held on Wednesday 27th June at Woburn Abbey.

  • Most of our attendees heard about our events through Social Media in 2018

    Located at the heart of Milton Keynes, Campbell Park hosts many of Milton Keynes’ major festivals and events. Its imaginative mix of formal gardens, water features, woodland and open pasture mean it’s an ideal spot to enjoy the changing seasons.

    There are no refreshment facilities in Campbell Park other than during special events. However, there are a wealth of cafes, bars and restaurants in the nearby city centre, theatre district and Xscape centre.
