Green Flag Awards 2011

A lot of work goes into preparing for Green Flag submissions for our parks.

We’ve been lucky in Wolverhampton, that we’ve again been successful, and are among a record number of parks and green spaces receiving Green Flag Awards this year in the UK; ensuring that more people than ever now have access to high-quality green spaces.

It is the fourth year running that West Park and Bantock Park have secured the award, while St Peter’s Gardens has received it for the last three years.  Phoenix Park retained its Green Flag status this year after securing it for the first time in 2010 following a major transformation programme.

In addition, West Park and Bantock Park were named Green Heritage Sites for the third year running.

The award aims to promote the value and upkeep of historic sites like the two Wolverhampton parks.

Until next time – enjoy ‘Wolverhampton’s Great Outdoors’ in this beautiful sunshine.
