What is the Green Flag award scheme?

The Green Flag award scheme has been running nationwide since 1996 and aims to set a benchmark for good quality green spaces. Judges visit the candidates and look at a list of qualities including, cleanliness, safety, community involvement, management and conservation.

The national award, handed out by environmental charity Keep Britain Tidy, recognises and rewards the best parks and green spaces across the country. A Green Flag flying overhead is a sign to visitors that the space boasts the highest possible standards, is beautifully maintained and has excellent facilities.
