Keeping the Green Flag flying

We have retained the Green Flag Award for five of our parks and green spaces.

The parks, which have once again been accredited with the international quality mark for parks and green spaces are:

  • Bunkers Park, Hemel Hempstead
  • Canal Fields, Berkhamsted
  • Chipperfield Common
  • Tring Memorial Garden
  • Water Gardens, Hemel Hempstead

Cllr Graham Barrett, Portfolio Holder for Neighbourhood Services, said: “Our parks and green spaces play a vital role for people as a place to relax, exercise and meet friends and family. The news that our parks have retained the Green Flag Award is testament to the hard work and dedication of the team that make the green space a great space that everyone can enjoy.

“The awards wouldn't be possible without collaboration between ourselves, town and parish councils and the amazing volunteers and community groups, who between them maintain the exceptional high standards in these council-run parks."

The Green Flag Award scheme - managed by environmental charity Keep Britain Tidy under license from the Department for Levelling Up, Housing and Communities - recognises and rewards well-managed parks and green spaces, setting the benchmark standard for the management of green spaces across the United Kingdom and around the world.
