Keep the Green Flags flying high

We've retained our five Green Flag awards for our parks and open spaces - the award is the benchmark national standard for parks and green spaces in the United Kingdom.

The following previous winners were once again each awarded a Green Flag:

  • Bunkers Park
  • Canal Fields
  • Chipperfield Common
  • Tring Memorial Garden
  • Water Gardens

The Green Flag Award Scheme is part of the Keep Britain Tidy campaign, and recognises the best green spaces in the country. To earn a Green Flag, the space must be welcoming, clean, and safe and secure, as well as having the support and involvement of the local community.

Cllr Alan Anderson, Portfolio Holder for Environmental Services, said: "We know how much quality green spaces matter to residents and visitors, and this award celebrates the dedication that goes into maintaining them to such a high standard.

"Each flag honours the staff and volunteers who work tirelessly to maintain the high standards demanded by the Green Flag Award. I would like to thank the community and volunteer groups, together with council staff, for their hard work and dedication in making this happen."

A Green Flag flying overhead is a sign to the public that the space boasts the highest possible standards, is beautifully maintained and has excellent facilities.

Full details of our Green Flag parks and green spaces can be found on our award-winning parks page.

The awards rely on partnership working between the council, town and parish councils and the local community and through our friends groups to maintain high standards in council-run parks. Visit the Green Flag Award website for further details.
