Maryon Park has been awarded Green Flag Status. The Green Flag Award scheme is the benchmark national standard for parks and green spaces in the UK.
The Green Flag award is given by an independent consortium who assess recreational green spaces against a set of criteria and is only given to the best green spaces in the country.
The work of the Friends and especially the Maryon Park Community Food Growing Garden helped the Park meet the criteria for community involvement.
