The Green Flag Award recognises our best parks and green spaces across Scotland. It is awarded to parks and green spaces who can demonstrate excellent management and environmental standards. Awards are given and renewed on an annual basis. Currently there are 73 award-winning parks and green spaces in Scotland.
Scots love their parks and greenspaces - according to the recent State of Scotland's Greenspace report with over 90% saying it is important to have greenspace in their local area
In Scotland we manage the Green Flag Award. We work in partnership with Keep Britain Tidy, Keep Northern Ireland Beautiful and Keep Wales Tidy to provide a UK benchmark standard for parks and green spaces.
