Six Bradford Council parks have once again been awarded the prestigious Green Flag Awards, it was announced yesterday.

Lister Park in Manningham, Peel Park in Bolton, Roberts Park in Saltaire, Harold Park in Low Moor, St Ives Estate in Bingley and Central Park in 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 Imran Khan, Bradford Council’s Executive member for Environment and Sport said: "We are incredibly lucky to have such wonderful parks in our district and they are ideal places to spend time with family and friends.

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