The Green Flag Award recognises and rewards the best parks and green spaces in the country as well as driving up quality and standards.

The Green Flag Award is a UK-wide partnership, delivered in Wales by Keep Wales Tidy with support from the Welsh Government

An enormous variety of green spaces are eligible to apply, from small urban parks to huge country parks,  university campuses, housing estates and even cemeteries.  There is also the Green Flag Community Award for community managed spaces such as allotments, woodlands, local nature reserves and community gardens.

Both Awards are judged by an army of green space experts, who volunteer their time to visit applicant sites and assess them against eight criteria, including horticultural standards, cleanliness, sustainability and community involvement. 

Among this year's recipients of the Green Flag Award were, for the first time, St Fagans Historic Gardens in Cardiff, Barry Island Promenade and Penllergare Valley Woods just outside Swansea. The number of Green Flag Community Awarded sites doubled in size welcoming amongst many Newry Beach Sunken Garden in Anglesey, Penmoelallt Woods in Merthyr Tydfil and Crucorney Allotments in Monmouthshire.
