Amber Valley is recognised for having 8 of the UK’s very best green spaces

Eight parks and green spaces covering all of Amber Valley have been awarded prestigious Green Flags, Belper Parks, Belper Cemetery, Belper River Gardens, Crays Hill Recreation Ground, Crossley Park, Heanor Memorial Park, Pennytown Ponds and Riddings Park have all been recognised by the Green Flag Award Scheme as being amongst the very best in the world.

The parks, nature reserves and cemetery are among a record-breaking 1,883 UK parks and green spaces that have received a prestigious Green Flag Award – the mark of a quality park or green space.

This international award, now into its third decade, is a sign to the public that the space boasts the highest possible environmental standards, is beautifully maintained and has excellent visitor facilities.

Councillor Christopher Short, Cabinet Member for Environment at Amber Valley Borough Council: “We are absolutely delighted to receive eight Green Flag Awards, which demonstrates the Council’s continuing commitment to provide some of the best quality open spaces in the country.

“We know how much quality green spaces matter to residents and visitors, and this award celebrates the dedication that goes into maintaining the sites to such a high standard.”

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, with more Green Flags awarded this year than last year.” 

“Each flag honours the thousands of staff and volunteers who work tirelessly to maintain the high standards demanded by the Green Flag Award. We are proud to have so many wonderful green spaces in the UK for people to enjoy, and hope that next year, we award even more flags.”
