Green spaces are the heart of every community.
They are used by millions and treasured by young and old alike. Research shows there is a clear link between our proximity to quality green spaces and our mental and physical wellbeing, even in urban areas. Everybody, no matter where they live, deserves to have an attractive park or green place nearby.
The Green Flag Award recognises and rewards the best green places. Through this award, Keep Britain Tidy strives to ensure that everyone has access to a safe, clean and pleasant space where they can relax, meet, play or exercise.
Green spaces are assessed every year and in 2012, a record number of awards were made. A Green Flag Award is the benchmark of a quality park or green space. Not only does a Green Flag flying overhead guarantee a public space is welcoming, clean, well-maintained, safe and secure, it also ensures it is managed sustainably and pays attention to the conservation of the natural and built environment.
Involving the community is also key to a park or green space being award a flag as it must meet their needs and demands and be a great place for people to spend time.
Keep Britain Tidy manage the scheme under licence from the Department for Communities and Local Government.
