Fifteen parks and open spaces maintained by Birmingham City Council and supported by ‘Friends Of’ parks groups have once again been named as Green Flag Award winners for 2022.

The scheme, operated by Keep Britain Tidy, recognises and rewards well-managed parks and green spaces, setting the benchmark standard for their management across the United Kingdom and around the world.

Across the country 2,208 sites are on the roll of honour this year – and in Birmingham all 15 sites that earned the honour last year have retained their prestigious flags this time around.

Cllr Majid Mahmood, Cabinet Member for Environment at Birmingham City Council, said: “I know how much the people of Birmingham love our parks, so it is great to see these sites are continuing to reach the standard for this well-regarded scheme.

“Our parks provide space for exercise, relaxation and have a great positive environmental benefit, which is why we have developed a 25-year City of Nature plan to ensure Birmingham’s open spaces continue to enhance the lives of residents.

“Every time we win or retain a Green Flag Award, it is a tribute to each and every member of our parks staff and the volunteers who whose hard work and effort make our open spaces the great assets that they are.”
