Paul Todd, Green Flag Award manager for Keep Britain Tidy, said:

“We know that parks matter to people and that receiving a Green Flag Award brings a real sense of achievement and pride to staff, volunteers and the community. The number of people that took the time to vote for their favourite park is testament to how much these spaces are valued and we congratulate this year’s top ten.”

Carl McClean, International Development Manager at the Green Flag Award said:

"Both Mexico and Portugal were new to join the Green Flag Award scheme in 2019 so it was fantastic to see Parque da Cidade appear in the top 5 voted parks. With new partnerships in Spain, Belgium and Finland alongside many other applications coming in from new countries it's a really exciting time to be part of this growing network of recognised parks - well done to all involved!"
