St Albans has got parks and gardens for everyone.
Organised by the British Red Cross, Open Gardens give occasional access to hidden and private gardens that are not usually open to the public. For a full list of locations and events in Herts, visit their website.
Young adventurers can enjoy free climbing, sliding and swinging at public playgrounds all over St Albans including Verulamium, Clarence and Greenwood parks. Tell us with your favourites and we'll feature them here.
Many residents are keen gardeners and some organise local 'gardens open for charity' events.
