Five of Chesterfield’s parks and open spaces, maintained by Chesterfield Borough Council, have, once again, been given a prestigious Green Flag award.
Queen’s Park near the town centre, Eastwood Park in Hasland, Holmebrook Valley Park, Poolsbrook Country Park and the grounds of Chesterfield and District Crematorium are among a record-breaking 1,883 UK parks and green spaces that will today receive a prestigious Green Flag Award – the mark of a quality park or green space.
Councillor Tricia Gilby, Chesterfield Borough Council’s leader, said: “We are very proud of our parks and open spaces in Chesterfield.
“Our staff work hard out carrying out maintenance to our parks supported by volunteers and friends groups and these awards are testament to all of their hard work and dedication.”
This international award, now into its third decade, is a sign to the public that the space boasts the highest possible environmental standards, is beautifully maintained and has excellent visitor facilities.
