Green Flag Awards

Victoria Park, Smethwick

We're proud to have 14 Green Flag-awarded parks and green spaces in Sandwell.

Green Flags are awarded by Keep Britain Tidy to parks and open spaces that are well looked after and look great There are 2,208 nationwide.

Sandwell's list includes a park in each of the six towns, a cemetery and a crematorium, as well as Sandwell Valley Country Park and community-run Warley Woods.

Thanks to all the volunteers, friends and community groups, council staff, waste partner Serco and other partner organisations for helping keep our parks and green spaces clean, tidy and well used.

The Green Flag Award scheme, managed by environmental charity Keep Britain Tidy under licence from the Ministry of Housing, Communities and Local Government, recognises and rewards well-managed parks and green spaces.

The awards set the benchmark standard for their management across the United Kingdom and around the world.
