More than 1,500 parks, cemeteries, universities, shopping centres and community gardens across the United Kingdom have achieved a Green Flag Award.
In 2016 there were 70 Green Flag Award sites across Scotland. This number has been rising steadily every year as more parks and green spaces recognise the benefits of being involved in the Green Flag Award and promoting their park. You can also view the sites via an interactive map on the Green Flag Award Winning website.
We will be announcing the 2017 award winners 18 July 2017.
Scotland has a range of Green Flag Award sites, from traditional Victorian parks, to woodlands and local nature reserves. You can find out more about the journey some of our Green Flag parks have taken to achieve their award by viewing our case studies:
