Green Flag Award
The Green Flag Award is the national standard for parks and green spaces in England and Wales.
The award scheme began in 1996 as a way of recognising and rewarding the best green spaces in the country. It was also seen as a way of encouraging others to achieve the same high environmental standards, creating a benchmark of excellence in recreational green areas.
Awards are given annually and winners must apply each year to renew their Green Flag status.
Christchurch Quay is the only site in Christchurch with a Green Flag Award.
