Hughenden Park has been given a prestigious Green Flag Award while The Rye and Higginson Park in Marlow have retained their Green Flag Awards.

The Green Flag will be flying in Hughenden Park for the first time after it was recognised for its beauty and upkeep by the Green Flag Award judges.

Higginson Park in Marlow has retained its Green Flag for the fourteenth consecutive year and The Rye in High Wycombe will keep its Green Flag for a the seventh year in succession placing them among the very best parks in the world.

Now in its third decade the international Green Flag Award is run by Keep Britain Tidy and is a signal to the visitors that the open space boasts the highest possible environmental standards, is beautifully maintained and has excellent visitor facilities.

Wycombe District Council’s Cabinet Member for Community Cllr Graham Peart said: ‘We are delighted that Hughenden Park has joined The Rye and Higginson Park in getting the recognition it deserves, which is a beautiful and well managed park that residents, families and visitors to the district thoroughly enjoy.

We know how much quality green spaces matter to our residents and visitors, and these awards not only celebrates the beauty of our parks but also highlights the dedication of the council and our contractor in maintaining them to such a high standard.

International Green Flag Award scheme manager Paul Todd said: ‘Each flag is a celebration of the thousands of staff and volunteers who work tirelessly to maintain the high standards demanded by the Green Flag Award.

The success of the scheme, especially in these challenging times, demonstrates just how much parks matter to people.
