Once more it’s been confirmed, Brighton and Hove have some of the finest green spaces in the country. No less than seven parks have been awarded Green Flags by the environmental charity Keep Britain Tidy.
Portslade’s Easthill Park, Hove Park, Kipling Gardens in Rottingdean, Preston Park, St Ann’s Well Gardens, Stoneham Park and The Level have once again been rewarded for their excellent facilities and maintenance and will be flying the Green Flags this summer.
It’s by far not the first time the parks receive the award. St. Ann’s Well Garden sees the Green Flag flying at its entrance for the 18th year in a row while it’s the 17th time for Preston Park.
Well-managed, clean and safe, those are the criteria Keep Britain Tidy takes into consideration when handing out the prestigeous national award. This year, 1797 parks and green spaces all over the country have met the required standards and received a Green Flag.
As parks and green spaces have become indispensable for people living in a city, offering them a place to exercise, relax and have fun, good maintenance and facilities are more important than ever. Good news that Brighton and Hove parks continue meeting the highest possible standards.
