Green Flag parks
We have a number of Green Flag parks, which recognise and reward the best parks and green spaces in the country. It is the benchmark set across the UK and beyond.
Councillor Adrian Lowe, Executive Member for Customer, Advice and Streetscene Services said, "We are delighted that 6 Chorley parks have been recognised once again in 2023 for this accolade.
- Astley Park
- Withnell Linear Park Nature Reserve
- Harpers Recreation Ground
- Rangletts Recreation Ground
- Yarrow Valley Country Park
- Coronation Recreation Ground
They are all wonderful parks and are well deserving of the Green Flag award once again.
"The Award 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.
"Yarrow Valley Park has won the award since 2005 and Withnell and Tatton Rec have had the award since 2008. Astley Park and Coronation Recreation Ground have held the award since 2014 and Rangletts Rec is our most recent site to be awarded in 2022."
"The council strives to improve and maintain our parks and open spaces to the best of our ability and the hard work and dedication from all our staff, community groups and volunteers has ensured that we have kept our parks to the highest standards.
"To have access to great parks and to be able to enjoy time outside amongst nature is so important for health and wellbeing. We absolutely encourage everyone to get out and about and spend time in our award winning parks - they are brilliant!"
