Jubilee Park can fly the Green Flag along with five others in North Lincolnshire

North Lincolnshire Council is celebrating after receiving a sixth Green Flag Award for its parks Jubilee Park is raising its prestigious Green Flag Award.

This year Jubilee Park has added to the list of Green Flag holders in North Lincolnshire, with the five current Green Flag holders – Central Park, Kingsway Gardens, Sheffield Park, Woodlands Memorial Park in Scunthorpe and Baysgarth Park in Barton – retaining their flags for another year.

The news that six of North Lincolnshire’s parks have achieved the accreditation – the international quality mark for parks and green spaces – is testament to the hard work and dedication of the team that care for the green spaces so that everyone can enjoy them, says the council.

This news comes in the run up to Love Parks Week 2023, the annual campaign from Keep Britain Tidy which celebrates parks, green spaces, and the dedicated volunteers and workers that look after them all year round. It will run this year from 28 July to 6 August.

Cllr David Rose, cabinet member for environment, welcomed the prestigious awards, commenting: “It is fantastic news to have another of our parks in North Lincolnshire nationally recognised. The success of Jubilee Park is a testament to the power of community engagement. Thanks to an active and dedicated community group, (Friends of Lincoln Gardens) and the hard work of our committed team we now have six parks in North Lincolnshire with a Green Flag award.

“This dedication means there are vibrant areas, throughout North Lincolnshire, for everyone to enjoy. Love Parks Week is the perfect time to get out there and explore what our parks have to offer.

“Congratulations and thank you to everyone who helps make our parks and green spaces the best they can be.”

Keep Britain Tidy’s Green Flag Award Scheme Manager Paul Todd said: “I would like to congratulate everyone involved at Jubilee Park in achieving a Green Flag Award.

“Jubilee Park is a vital green space for the community in North Lincolnshire, bringing people together and providing opportunities to lead healthy lifestyles.

“The staff and volunteers do so much to ensure that it maintains the high standards of the Green Flag Award and everyone involved should feel extremely proud of their achievement.”

The Green Flag Award scheme, managed by environmental charity Keep Britain Tidy under licence from the Department for Levelling Up, Housing and Communities, recognises and rewards well-managed parks and green spaces, setting the benchmark standard for the management of green spaces across the United Kingdom and around the world.
