Hastings retains 3 Green Flag Awards
Three parks in Hastings and St Leonards have retained their Green Flag status making them some of the very best parks in the UK.
Hastings Country Park, Alexandra Park and St Leonards Gardens have all been awarded the prestigious Green Flag Award for the second year in a row.
The national award, handed out by environmental charity Keep Britain Tidy, recognises and rewards the best parks and green spaces across the country. A Green Flag flying overhead is a sign to visitors that the space boasts the highest possible standards, is beautifully maintained and has excellent facilities.
Cllr Dawn Poole, lead member for leisure and amenities said:
“We are absolutely delighted once again to receive Green Flag recognition for three of our parks and gardens, a magnificent result with Alexandra Park also receiving a Green Heritage award.
“I would like to thank our grounds maintenance contractors, The Landscape Group for all their hard work in making our parks and gardens look great and all the park managers, staff and volunteers for their hard work and dedication which has helped to create these fantastic places for us all to enjoy.”
