Multiple green spaces in Devon receive prestigious Green Flag awards
Several green spaces in Devon have received the prestigious Green Flag Award for being high quality and well managed, joining other parks that set the benchmark standard nationwide.
Parks and green spaces are enjoyed widely across Devon, and have been a source of reprieve and safe socialisation in the time during and since the lockdown. The trees and grassland in these green spaces store carbon and can cool the local area during heatwaves, helping to tackle climate change. Well maintained and accessible green spaces are also vital to make space for wildlife and to enable people to appreciate and value nature.
