What we do
Rangers work with other departments across the council and local conservation groups to co-ordinate the management of our 10 countryside parks and three urban parks.
A Ranger's role is very varied. Work focuses on making sure that sites are safe, secure and well maintained, and that they strike a good balance of conservation, education and recreation.
