Surrey Heath Borough Council announce double celebrations as Lightwater Country Park achieves its first Green Flag Award, and Frimley Lodge Park its 19th.
Lightwater Country Park has been recognised by the Green Flag Award scheme as one of the best in the country. It’s the first time the 59-hectare park in Surrey Heath has been awarded this international mark of quality.
And it was a day of double celebrations in Surrey Heath as Frimley Lodge Park received a Green Flag Award too – for an amazing 19th time.
The parks are among a record-breaking 1,970 UK parks and green spaces, and 131 in thirteen other countries around the world, that will today receive a prestigious Green Flag Award – the mark of a quality park or green space.
This international award, now into its third decade, is a sign to the public that the space boasts the highest possible environmental standards, is beautifully maintained and has excellent visitor facilities.
