Parks in Liverpool receive green awards
Keep Britain Tidy have awarded Stanley Park with a Green Heritage award as recognition of its importance to Liverpool’s heritage in addition to its Green Flag status.
Green Flags indicates that a park has the highest possible standards, is highly maintained and has excellent facilities. Green Heritage Site accreditation is judged on the treatment of the site’s historic features and the standard of conservation.
Councillor Peter Mitchell, Mayoral Lead for Parks, said: “We are absolutely delighted to receive the Green Flag and Green heritage awards from Keep Britain Tidy. They show that our parks are well maintained and that they are an important part of our heritage.”
Keep Britain Tidy’s Green Flag Award scheme manager Paul Todd said: “We are delighted to announce yet another record-breaking year for Green Flag Award parks and green spaces.
“A Green Flag Award provides national recognition for all the parks managers, staff and volunteers who, through their dedication and hard work, have helped to create these fantastic places for everyone to enjoy.
“Quality green spaces are a vital resource for communities and that is why it is so significant that we have given out more awards than ever before.”
