Passport to Parks is a national award winning ‘brass rubbing’ type trail around 14 of Leicester’s finest parks.
How it works
Each passport contains a map of 14 Leicester parks and information on how to get there. On each page, opposite the information, there is a blank page. This is where a ‘brass rubbing’ (with a crayon or pencil for example) of the ‘passport to parks’ symbol to be found on each park, can be made. This is mounted on a wooden post situated in the park. Each symbol is different on each park. As you search for each plaque you will also discover the wealth of ancient monuments, wildlife and recreational facilities to be found on these parks.
For each passport received with 5 or more parks symbols collected, participants will receive a free pass/family pass to another leisure facility the City Council provides.
