Green Flags awarded to eight Cheshire East parks

Cheshire East Council’s parks are some of the very best in the UK – and that’s official!

The council has notched-up Green Flag awards for eight of its outstanding parks which is an important element of the council’s commitment to ‘quality of place’ for the region.

The awards are recognition of outstanding partnership working both with other local authorities and community groups.

A Green Flag community award recognises quality sites managed by voluntary and local community groups. Green Heritage site accreditation is judged on the treatment of the site’s historic features and the standard of conservation.

Tatton Park, in Knutsford, and Queens Park, in Crewe, also notched-up a Green Heritage Award each, with Tatton receiving both awards for the 15th year in a row.

These awards are only given to places that achieve a high standard in management and interpretation of a site with local or national historic importance.

Significant investment in our parks in recent years has led to the following parks being awarded Green Flag status: Bollington Recreation Ground; Brereton Heath Local Nature Reserve; Congleton Park, Queens Park; Sandbach Park; Tatton Park; Tegg’s Nose Country Park; and The Moor, in Knutsford.
