Kings Norton Park has joined Birmingham’s list of 17 Green Flag parks, being awarded the symbol of Britain’s best green spaces for the first time.

Kings Norton Park joins 16 other Birmingham parks and crematoria which have all retained their Green Flag status, including: Cotteridge Park, Kings Norton Cemetery, Lickey Hills Country Park, Selly Oak Park and Northfield’s Victoria Common.

Awarded by Keep Britain Tidy, a Green Flag signifies that a space boasts the highest possible standards, is beautifully maintained and has excellent facilities.

Councillor Lisa Trickett, cabinet member for clean streets, recycling and environment at Birmingham City Council, said: “I am delighted that so many of Birmingham’s green spaces have yet again been recognised for their exceptionally high standards with these prestigious Green Flag awards […]

“Our parks and green spaces are part of what makes our city so great and are essential to our quality of life, whether they are encouraging people to get active, fit and healthy, or simply providing a peaceful space for quiet reflection and remembrance.”

Cllr Trickett recognised that council employees, community groups and volunteers all play a vital role in maintaining the city’s green spaces.

Well done to all the staff and volunteers who make our parks such fantastic spaces for our communities to enjoy!

Special congratulations to council staff, Friends of Kings Norton Park and everyone else who has given time to maintaining and improving Kings Norton Park!
