Scarborough Parks Named As Two Of The Best In Britain

Peasholm Park

More parks and green spaces than ever will be flying the Green Flag Award across the UK this year, including two in Scarborough.

Falsgrave Park and Peasholm Park have been voted among the best 1,582 parks and green spaces in Britain and as such will receive the prestigious Green Flag Award.

The Green Flag flying overhead is a sign to the public that the space boasts the highest possible standards, is beautifully maintained and has excellent facilities.

Pannett Park in Whitby, Glen and Crescent Gardens in Filey also received the award.

Paul Thompson, Scarborough Borough Council Operations, Transport and Countryside Manager said:
"We are absolutely delighted to receive a Green Flag Award once again for each of our borough's four top parks. Parks and open spaces play a key role in the life of our local communities and these awards recognise and highlight that people in our borough are benefiting from green spaces of the very highest quality with the best possible facilities for all to enjoy." 
"We’d like to take this opportunity to thank all the friends’ groups and other volunteers that work hard all year round to help us make our parks the award winning places they are, we couldn't do it without them."

Paul Todd, Keep Britain Tidy International Green Flag Award Scheme Manager said:
"We are delighted to be celebrating another record-breaking year for the Green Flag Award scheme. All the flags flying this year are a testament to the efforts of the thousands of men and women, both staff and volunteers, who work tirelessly to maintain the high standards demanded by the Green Flag Award."

The announcement of this year's award winners comes in the same week that thousands of people up and down the country are enjoying Love Parks Week (July 24 to August 2), an annual celebration of the country's fantastic green spaces and the community groups that bring them to life.
