Green Flag celebration in Ashfield

Posted onPosted on 22nd Oct

Six parks in Ashfield have again been awarded with the Green Flag Award – Brierley Forest Park, Kingsway Park, Portland Park, Selston Country Park, Sutton Lawn and Titchfield Park, Hucknall.

The Green Flag Award scheme recognises and rewards well managed parks and green spaces, setting the benchmark standard for the management of recreational outdoor spaces across the United Kingdom and around the world.

Coun Samantha Deakin, cabinet member for parks, town centres and neighbourhood services, said: “We are so pleased to have received six green flags in our fantastic parks again this year. We have invested heavily into our parks and green spaces to ensure that they are places that can be enjoyed by everyone. Our parks are popular with our residents as a place to escape and to enjoy connecting with nature.

“These past two years people have really seen the value of having great quality green spaces on their doorstep. We are proud of the hard work that our teams have put into maintaining our parks to such a high standard that they are nationally recognized as being some of the best in the country.”
