Priory Park in Reigate and Memorial Park in Redhill have retained their Green Flag Award, given this year to 173 parks and green spaces across the South East.

The international scheme, which has been running for over 20 years, recognises green spaces that have high environmental standards, are beautifully maintained and have excellent visitor facilities.

Memorial Park picked up its first Green Flag in 2017, joining Priory Park which had already gained the status.

Cllr Natalie Bramhall, executive member for neighbourhood services at Reigate & Banstead Borough Council said of this year’s recognition: “We are absolutely delighted to receive a Green Flag Award for both Memorial Park and Priory Park.

“We know our parks and open spaces are much loved by residents and visitors to the borough and we take great pride in providing clean, attractive and exciting open spaces.

“I’d like to thank our Greenspaces team who work so hard throughout the year to keep these areas in tip top condition. This award celebrates their dedication to these spaces.”

The Green Flag Awards are run in the UK by Keep Britain Tidy on behalf of the Government.
