Times may have changed over the last 20 years but Walsall's park fun days are still every bit as popular now as then - attracting thousands of visitors.

Organised by Walsall Council's senior park rangers, this year's dates have just been announced.

Events are being held between 23 July and 27 August across the borough's parks and will feature stalls, activities and children's rides.

They are free admission, but there will be charges to go on the rides.

Councillor Anthony Harris, portfolio holder for leisure and culture with Walsall Council Coalition, said: "Our thanks go to the park rangers for all their hard work in putting on these park fun days over the last two decades.

"There's no two ways about it, they attract thousands of visitors and encourage families to enjoy a day out together.

"While xboxes and iphones would have been unheard of twenty years ago the popularity of these events show that while the world has changed people still want to spend time together, having fun.

"And I'm all for residents of all ages getting out and about in our super parks, exploring the lovely green spaces we have in this borough."
