Green Flag raised in 21 of the borough’s parksSun 22 Jul 2018
Keep Britain Tidy’s Green Flag awards recognise and reward the best parks and green spaces across the country. A Green Flag flying is a sign that identifies the park for its high standards, is beautifully maintained and has excellent facilities.
Councillor Mik Sabiers cabinet member for environment and highways said: "Ealing has a well-earned reputation for its beautiful green spaces and they continue to be a source of great pride for everyone connected with the borough."
"I am delighted that 21 of our parks and open spaces have been recognised with Green Flag status, it’s a wonderful achievement."
"Along with our great parks teams, there are hundreds of volunteers who work with them to create spaces which people can enjoy. Congratulations to them all, these flags are testament to your passion and commitment to make this borough a great place to live and visit."
The three 2018 Green Flag Award parks in Southall are:
- Southall Park
- Spikesbridge Park
- Southall Manor House Grounds
The Green Flag Awards are judged by more than 700 green space experts who assess using eight strict criteria including horticultural standards, cleanliness, sustainability and community involvement.
