The UK's 15 National Parks work with national partners through National Parks Partnerships. Our partners provide vital support to the National Parks family and help us to increase the understanding, enjoyment and valuing of our special landscapes.
We are a key agency in a network of specialist partners that help realise the Broads Plan - the long term management strategy for the Broads. In addition to local authorities, our partners include:
The UK’s 15 National Parks are working together with Columbia Sportswear making Columbia the Official Outfitter to the National Park rangers and staff - the people who protect and promote some of Britain’s best-loved landscapes. Demonstrating huge commitment to the National Parks, Columbia is outfitting upwards of 2,000 National Park staff including 300 rangers, providing high quality clothing that's "tested tough"™ and designed to keep them warm, dry, cool and protected in Britain's toughest conditions.
The Norfolk and Suffolk Broads is Britain's largest protected wetland and third largest inland waterway, with the status of a national park. It's also home to some of the rarest plants and animals in the UK. The Broads Authority was set up in 1989, with responsibility for conservation, planning, recreation and waterways.
