Medway can now boast that seven of its parks are among the best in the country.
Capstone Country Park, Riverside Country Park, Great Lines Heritage Park, The Vines, Broomhill Park, Hillyfields Community Park and Gillingham Park were announced on 19 July by the Green Flag Award Scheme. Increased council spending on improving walkways and cycle routes helped to garner the awards.
Councillor Howard Doe, deputy leader and portfolio holder for housing and community services, said: “We are pleased that our seven beautiful parks have been recognised for their high standards. Medway is proud of its green spaces and the Green Flag Award celebrates the dedication that goes into maintaining the parks to such a high standard. The park rangers, together with our Friends groups and volunteers, work hard to maintain our parks so they can be enjoyed by all.”
