Green Flag award
The Green Flag Award is the national standard for parks and green spaces in England and Wales and both recognises and rewards the best green spaces in the country. Winning a Green Flag Award brings excellent publicity especially since both the media and the public are becoming increasingly aware that a site flying a Green Flag is a high quality green space.
Green Flag 2019/20
Eastrop Park has been awarded Green Flag status for the 20th year running by the scheme while War Memorial Park has received the same award for the 12th year in a row. The Green Flag Awards are nationally recognised as a sign of quality, indicating that the parks have the highest possible environmental standards, are beautifully maintained, clean and safe, and have excellent facilities for visitors. They have been presented to the parks by the environmental charity Keep Britain Tidy.
