The award is an international quality mark for parks and green spaces, and was given to Cedars Park, Cheshunt Park, Barclay Park, Cheshunt Cemetery, and the Top Field and Cozens Grove nature reserve
The Green Flag Awards are run by Keep Britain Tidy, and the best open spaces in the country are allowed to fly a green flag as a sign of excellent facilities maintained to the highest standard.
Councillor David Holliday, Cabinet Member for Environment, said:
“The past two years that have seen the Borough’s parks and green spaces play a vital role for people through lockdowns as a place to relax, exercise and meet friends and family safely. The Green Flag Award is testament to the hard work and dedication of the team, Friends of the parks and volunteer groups that make the green space a great space that everyone can enjoy.”
Keep Britain Tidy’s Accreditation Manager Paul Todd said:
“I would like to congratulate everyone involved in making Broxbourne’s open spaces worthy of a Green Flag Award.
“These are vital green spaces for the community. This award is testament to all the hard work of staff and volunteers, who do so much to ensure that it maintains the high standards demanded by the Green Flag Award.”
