Tue, 29 Jul 2014

Lister Park, Manningham, Peel Park, Bolton, Roberts Park, Saltaire, Harold Park, Low Moor, St Ives Estate, Bingley, and Central Park, Haworth, have all received the prestigious award.

The Green Flag Award scheme is run by the environmental charity Keep Britain Tidy on behalf of the Department for Communities and Local Government, and is the benchmark national standard for parks and green spaces in the UK.

Coun Andrew Thornton, Bradford Council’s Executive member for Environment and Sport said: "This result is terrific news.

"Congratulations go to the hard-working staff who look after our great parks throughout the year, as well as the wonderful volunteer groups of ‘friends’ who contribute so much to them.

"We are lucky to have such wonderful parks in our district and they are ideal places to spend time with family and friends. There are some fantastic events planned in our parks over the summer for everyone to enjoy.”
