Waunfawr Park in Crosskeys has scooped a prestigious Green Flag Award.
The park, which has bowling, cricket, football and rugby pitches as well as a multi use games area, has been praised by award judges for being clean and welcoming as well as having the support and involvement of the community.
Caerphilly County Borough Council’s cabinet member for the environment Lyn Ackerman said: “The fact that Waunfawr Park has been granted this prestigious award is testimony to the hard work that has and will continue to take place to maintain the park’s excellence and beauty.
“My congratulations and thanks go not only to officers whose job it is to keep the park well maintained, but also to the many volunteers who work tirelessly to ensure that Waunfawr Park and indeed other parks and open spaces throughout the Caerphilly county borough are welcoming and attractive places to visit.”
The Green Flag Award is a national standard for parks and green spaces. It is the inland equivalent to the Blue Flag Award given to the country’s top beaches.
