• Green Flag Award 2022 success for 15 city parks!

    “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.” – Birmingham City Council

     

     It is fantastic to see the work of parks and open spaces Friends Groups being recognised and celebrated by the council and Green Flag Award. Congratulations to all of the volunteers for all of their hard work!

     

     “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.” – Cllr Majid Mahmood, Cabinet Member for Environment at Birmingham City Council.
