Milton Park, in Alsager, have scooped a Green Flag Award – a sign to the public that the space boasts the highest possible environmental standards, is beautifully maintained and has excellent visitor facilities.
It puts them among a further eight formal parks and green spaces in the borough – and a record-breaking 1,970 UK and 131 in 13 other countries around the world – to have received one of the prestigious awards.
The popular facilities in Milton Park, off Crewe Road, include a children’s play area, junior football pitch, a rose garden and ornamental lawn area. The award for this park recognises the result of a long-term programme of works carried out in partnership with the friends group and other local organisations.
The Green Flag award is given to authorities that deliver a parks service to an international standard. All parks are measured on how well they are maintained, how sustainable they are, along with their contributions to conservation and heritage.
