Green Flags flying at 280 green spaces

A record number of parks and green spaces across Wales have reached the high standards required to fly the coveted Green Flag. 

We’re delighted to reveal the 280 sites that have received the internationally renowned Green Flag Award and Green Flag Community Award.   

First-time winners of the Green Flag Award include Parc Tredelerch in Cardiff, Mount Pleasant Hospital housing estate in Swansea and the University of Wales Trinity Saint David campuses in Carmarthen and Lampeter.  

Wales still holds more than a third of the UK’s Green Flag community sites, which are maintained and run by volunteers. These range from two new community ponds in Newport, a fire station in Ogmore Vale, and Chirk Station, the first train station to be awarded a Green Flag Community Award 

It’s fantastic to see a record number of our green spaces have achieved a Green Flag status, including a number of newly awarded sites. The standard required to achieve Green Flag status is very high so I want to congratulate all of the sites recognised for providing excellent, year-round facilities to local people and visitors alike. Our local green spaces have a vital role to play in connecting us to nature, supporting biodiversity and providing opportunities for healthy recreation.

Now in its third decade, the Green Flag Award recognises well-managed parks and green spaces in 20 countries around the world. 

Free access to safe, high quality green space has never been more important. Our award-winning sites play a vital role in people’s mental and physical well-being, providing a haven for communities to come together, relax and enjoy nature. News that 280 parks and green spaces in Wales have achieved Green Flag Awards is testament to the hard work of hundreds of staff and volunteers. We’re delighted to be able to celebrate their success on the world stage.
