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 Community award.

 

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 ages.”
