Keep Wales Tidy has unveiled this year’s Green Flag Award winners – the international mark of a quality park or green space – and we’re excited to announce that Parc Bryn Bach is one of them!
This year a record-breaking 201 parks and green spaces, including universities, cemeteries, woodlands and allotments across Wales, have met the high standards needed to receive the coveted Green Flag Award and Green Flag Community Award.
Anthony Hughes, Managing Director of Aneurin Leisure, the charitable trust that manages Parc Bryn Bach said; “We at Aneurin Leisure are extremely proud to earn the right to fly the prestigious Green Flag at Parc Bryn Bach. The award means a great deal to us as it not only recognises the quality of our excellent facilities, but also our commitment to delivering great quality green spaces for our visitors.”
The Green Flag Award programme is delivered in Wales by environmental charity, Keep Wales Tidy, with support from Welsh Government. It is judged by green space experts, who volunteer their time to visit applicant sites and assess them against eight strict criteria, including horticultural standards, cleanliness, environmental management and community involvement.
Lucy Prisk, Green Flag Coordinator at Keep Wales Tidy said: “We’re delighted to be celebrating another record-breaking year for the Green Flag Awards in Wales. The 201 flags flying are a testament to the dedication and enthusiasm of the staff and volunteers across the country who work tirelessly to maintain Green Flag Award standards. I’d encourage everyone to get outdoors this summer and enjoy the incredible parks and green spaces we have on our doorstep.”
