Upton Country Park, Poole Park and Hamworthy Park are among a record-breaking  1,582, parks and green spaces to be awarded Green Flags in 2015/16.

This is Upton Country Park’s tenth Green Flag which means we’ve again been recognised as one of the top green spaces in the country and it’s something we’re very proud of. We’re constantly working to keep Upton Country Park maintained to the highest possible standards both in terms of the services we offer and the cleanliness of all the facilities.

Poole Park has been awarded the status eight times, and Hamworthy Park six times.

The Green Flag Awards are run in the UK by environmental charity Keep Britain Tidy on behalf of the Department for Communities and Local Government. Green spaces are judged every year by an army of 800 volunteer expert judges who visit and assess sites against criteria including horticulture, cleanliness and community involvement.

Councillor John Rampton, cabinet portfolio holder for environment said: “We are extremely proud of the variety and quality of open spaces across Poole, and with this year’s Green Flag awards coinciding with events for Love Parks Week, there really is no better time to celebrate these areas as well as the extensive work of volunteers and council staff to ensure they remain places for residents and visitors to enjoy all year round.”
