Councillor Mik Sabiers, cabinet member for environment and highways, said: “I am delighted that 22 of our parks and open spaces have been recognised with Green Flag status, it’s a wonderful achievement.
“If nothing else, the COVID-19 pandemic has highlighted the importance of our parks and open spaces in contributing to our health and wellbeing as spaces to relax, walk, exercise and play.
“Along with our great parks teams, there are hundreds of volunteers who work with them to create spaces which people can enjoy. Congratulations to them all, these flags are testament to your passion and commitment to make this borough a great place to live and visit.”
The Green Flag Awards is run by the environmental charity Keep Britain Tidy. They are judged by more than 700 green space experts who assess using eight strict criteria including horticultural standards, cleanliness, sustainability and community involvement.
