We are thrilled to announce that Priory Park has won a Green Flag Award for the second year running which is a real coup for the park as Grafham Water, Hinchingbrooke Park and Paxton Pits are the only other facilities in Huntingdonshire with this status.

The Green Flag Award® scheme recognises and rewards well managed parks and green spaces, setting the benchmark standard for the management of recreational outdoor spaces across the United Kingdom and around the world.

Research shows that many people are increasingly relying on their local park as a place to exercise, relax and have fun, quality green space has never been more important. People will only visit a park if they perceive it to be clean and safe and the Green Flag Award is an easy way for the public to see at a glance that their park meets the highest standards.

Gaining Green Flag status involves a site visit by a judging panel and is marked against 8 key criteria, so it is by no means automatic, so we are delighted to have achieved this.

With further funding, we hope to make further improvements.
