Six parks and open spaces in North Somerset will “proudly” fly the Green Flag this year, the council has said.
The six sites are Portishead Lake Grounds, Prince Consort Gardens in Weston-super-Mare, Abbots Pool in Abbots Leigh, Watchhouse Hill in Pill, Trendlewood Community Park in Nailsea, and Uphill Hill Local Nature Reserve.
The prestigious award is a sign to the public that the site boasts the highest possible environmental standards, is beautifully maintained, and has excellent visitor facilities.
Councillor Peter Bryant, North Somerset Council’s executive member for parks and open spaces, said: “We know how important quality green spaces are to our residents and visitors.
“There is a tremendous amount of work that goes into maintaining these sites to such a high standard.
“I would like to thank our contractors Glendale, Somerset Wood Recycling, and all the wonderful volunteers in the various Friends groups.”
