Riverside Park gets Green Flag

Rob George 17th Jul, 2019

WORCESTER’S Riverside Park – along with three others in the city – has been named as one of the best in the UK by the national Keep Britain Tidy campaign.

A prestigious Green Flag has been awarded to the park, an 83.9-hectare green area around the River Severn, running through the heart of the city.

The Riverside Park joins the roster of Worcester’s premiere parks to secure the Green Flag, with Gheluvelt Park, Cripplegate Park and Fort Royal Park having all retained the award for another year.

The awards have been announced during the national Love Parks Week, which runs until July 21.

Coun Joy Squires, chair of Worcester City Council’s Environment Committee, said: “The Riverside Park is an oasis at the heart of our historic city and this Green Flag is an endorsement of the commitment we have made to making it even more of an appealing location to visit, enjoy and relax in.”
