Borough parks to fly the Green Flag - again!
Parks in Bedford Borough have once again been named among the
best in the country.
Addison Howard Park, Bedford Park, Priory Country Park and
Harrold-Odell Country Park have all retained their Green Flag
status. This is the 11th year in a row that Priory Country Park has
been awarded Green Flag status by The Conservation Volunteers,
GreenSpace and Keep Britain Tidy.
Hill Rise Local Nature Reserve has also won a Green flag
Mayor of Bedford Borough, Dave Hodgson, said; “It is fantastic
news that the borough’s parks have again retained their Green Flag
status. This is wonderful recognition of all the hard work which
goes into looking after our parks and green spaces throughout the
year and I would like to thank all the volunteers and the Council
staff who contribute to this effort.
“Local residents can be rightly proud of the parks and green
spaces in the borough. We will continue to work hard to ensure they
remain clean and attractive places to visit for people of all
