Trio of Redditch parks scoop Green Flag Awards
7:30am Tuesday 20th August 2013 in News
CELEBRATIONS are in the air for Redditch Council as Arrow Valley Country Park, Morton Stanley Park and Overdale Park once again received the prestigious Green Flag Award.
The three parks were among a number of parks and green spaces to receive a Green Flag Award this year.
The award scheme is the benchmark national standard for parks and green spaces in the UK. It was first launched in 1996 to recognise and reward the best green spaces in the country.
Coucnillor Phil Mould, whose portfolio covers leisure services, said: “For three of our parks to have been judged as among the best in the country is an incredible achievement. The council’s parks and open spaces team should be extremely proud of the work they have done to provide residents with award-winning open spaces.”
