This summer our parks are facing a severe staffing shortage. Budget freezes due to COVID-19 mean we only have around 200 seasonal staff to help maintain parks, instead of our usual 900. Nearly 90 of our administration staff, everyone from accounting to landscape architects, have been reassigned to help in the parks for up to two days a week – and we need your help too.
