If the ongoing Covid-19 pandemic has taught us anything, it’s how much we value our local parks and green spaces. All year round, an army of unsung dedicated parks staff and volunteers look after these treasured spaces, and tonight, landmarks across the country, including the White Cliffs of Dover, the London Stadium in Queen Elizabeth Olympic Park, and Salford’s Media City, will be going green to celebrate this year’s Green Flag Award-winning parks and green spaces and to say a massive ‘thank you’ to the thousands of people who work tirelessly to give us some fantastic places to escape to.
|As well as lighting up our well-loved landmarks green, we’ve also spoken to parks staff, volunteers, and members of the general public to find out why, this year more than ever, parks have held such a special place in our hearts. See the film in full below and feel free to share on your own social media channels. |
The list of award winning parks and open spaces can be found here.
