Residents and community groups from across west Leeds are being invited to discuss parks and green spaces.

People living in Armley, Bramley, Stanningley and Kirkstall are being given the opportunity to discuss improvements to local parks, play areas, playing pitches and other outdoor spaces at a public meeting.

Councillor Caroline Gruen, chair of the Inner West Community Committee, is encouraging as many people as possible to take part in the workshop at Stanningley Amateur Rugby Football Club on December 10 at 5pm.

Members of the committee will look at proposals to establish Kirkstall Valley Park, which they claim could become a top attraction for the city.

Councillor Gruen wants to hear views from across the community and thoughts about what needs to be done to make local parks and green spaces more accessible to the communities they serve.

She also wants to hear suggestions about how to improve play facilities for children.

Coun Gruen said: “I’m really looking forward to discussing the future of our fantastic parks and to hear the views of the community as to what we can do to make them even better for people of all ages.

“Community Committees are a great forum for anyone to discuss issues that matter to them so I hope many people will come along.”
