Fareham’s parks given national recognition

Fareham has been named as having two of the best parks in the country by the prestigious Green Flag Awards.

Holly Hill Woodland Park and The Sensory Garden of Reflection in Osborne Road, Fareham, have received the recognition for the 12th and 10th year in a row.

The awards recognise parks and green spaces which boast the highest possible environmental standards, are beautifully maintained and have excellent visitor facilities. The awards also had international winners for the first time.

Councillor Simon Martin, Executive Member for Streetscene at Fareham Borough Council, said: “We are so pleased to receive these two awards – it’s great news for the people of Fareham. Having quality green space is so important for our residents and visitors and the award recognises the hard work and effort that goes into maintaining our high standards.

“Thank you to all our fantastic staff who do such a good job in looking after our open spaces and we hope our residents take full advantage of our lovely surroundings.”

International Green Flag Award scheme manager Paul Todd said: “It’s fantastic that we have more Green Flag Awards in the UK than ever before, joined this year by 126 international winners.

“Each flag honours the thousands of staff and volunteers who work tirelessly to maintain the high standards demanded by the Green Flag Award. We congratulate each and every winner on their fantastic achievement.”
