Parks secure Queen Elizabeth II status

To mark last year’s Diamond Jubilee celebrations, four parks in the Mansfield District are now designated as Queen Elizabeth II Fields, which means they are now permanently protected so everyone can enjoy them for generations to come.

Outdoor recreational spaces permanently protected Queen Elizabeth II Fields Challenge, operated by Fields in Trust, is a campaign to protect outdoor recreational spaces in communities all across the country as a permanent living legacy of the Diamond Jubilee and London 2012 Olympics.

The sites, which now have Fields in Trust status, are:

  • Titchfield Park, Mansfield
  • The Carrs Park, Warsop
  • Carr Lane Park, Warsop
  • Peafield Park, Mansfield Woodhouse

 

In addition to the Fields in Trust status, ASDA and the Asda Foundation who are the principal partners of Fields in Trust’s Queen Elizabeth II Fields Challenge, also donated a set of football goal posts, which have recently been installed on Titchfield Park.

Cllr Philip Shields, Portfolio Holder for the Environment, said: “It is excellent news that we now have four sites in our District protected and retained for future generations. These sites are great examples of how local communities will benefit from successful Diamond Jubilee Project and the 2012 Games.”
