Green Flag Awards for district’s parks

Bradford parks are Clean and Green! Five Bradford Council parks have once again been awarded the Green Flag Award.

Peel Park, Undercliffe, Harold Park, Low Moor, Lister Park, Manningham, Roberts Park, Saltaire and Central Park, Haworth have been awarded the prestigious accolade.

The Green Flag Award scheme is run by the environmental charity Keep Britain Tidy on behalf of the Department for Communities and Local Government, and is the benchmark national standard for parks and green spaces in the UK.

Coun Sarah Ferriby, Bradford Council’s Executive Member for Environment, Sports and Culture, said: “We are extremely proud of the wonderful parks we have in our district.”

“I would like to offer congratulations to the hard-working staff who look after our parks throughout the year, creating a clean, safe and beautiful environment for families and friends to enjoy.”

“We are also lucky to have help from the countless volunteer groups of ‘friends’ who help maintain the parks. There are some fantastic events planned in our parks for the summer.”

“I know a lot of time and effort has been put in by Friends Of groups and Council officers in supporting our parks and projects. Green Flag status recognition is a culmination of all the hard work that goes in. Thank you all.”

The aim of the Green Flag 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.
It promotes and shares good practice amongst the green space sector, at the same time as recognising and rewarding hard work of managers, staff and volunteers.

Share the joy
