Green Flag Awards for Parks

Belper Parks, Belper Cemetery, Belper River Gardens, Cray’s Hill Recreation Ground, Crossley Park Ripley, Pennytown Ponds Somercotes, Heanor Memorial Park and Riddings Park are named among the best in Britain,

More parks and green spaces than ever will be flying the Green Flag Award this year – more than 1,600 across the UK.

Amber Valley Borough Council’s parks and open spaces are among a record-breaking 1,686 parks and green spaces that have received a prestigious Green Flag Award – the mark of a quality park or green space.

The award, now celebrating its 20th year, recognises and rewards the best parks and green spaces across the country. 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.

Cllr Chris Short, Portfolio Holder for the Environment said: “We are absolutely delighted to receive eight Green Flag Awards for Amber Valley Parks from Keep Britain Tidy.

“This Award recognises and highlights that people in the Borough are benefiting from a green space of the very highest quality.”

International Green Flag Award scheme manager Paul Todd said: “We are delighted to be celebrating another record-breaking year for the Green Flag Award scheme, especially as we celebrate the 20th anniversary of the Awards.

“All the flags flying this year are a testament to the efforts of the thousands of men and women, both staff and volunteers, who work tirelessly to maintain the high standards demanded by the Green Flag Award.”
