Harrison Park to fly the Green Flag

Well done to Harrison Park ... along with Braidburn Valley Park, and another park in Dundee ... they have all been awarded Scotland's first Green Flag Awards for 'parks and green spaces'.

The Green Flag Award scheme has been the national standard for parks and green spaces in England and Wales since 1996 and is being piloted in Scotland this year in partnership with Greenspace Scotland.

The scheme aims to "encourage the provision of safe, clean and accessible public parks which are managed in an environmentally sustainable way" ... well, I must have used Harrison Park (it's just across the road from where I live) on literally hundreds of occasions over the last 10-years and can definitely confirm that there's been a huge improvement in the quality of its environment and the facilities provided within its boundaries over the last few years.

Well-deserved award for all those involved.
