Hall Park is recognised as one of the UK's very best green spaces.

Today, a record number of parks and green spaces collect a Green Flag Award .

Hall Park in Rushden has been recognised by the Green Flag Award Scheme as one of the very best in the world. Hall Park joins 5 other green spaces awarded recognition in Northamptonshire. More »

The Park is among a record-breaking 1,883 UK parks and green spaces that will today receive a prestigious Green Flag Award - the mark of a quality park or green space.

This international award, now into its third decade, is a sign to the public that the space boasts the highest possible environmental standards, is beautifully maintained and has excellent visitor facilities.

Rushden Town Council said: “We are absolutely delighted to receive a Green Flag Award for the 5th year running.

We know how much quality green spaces matter to residents and visitors, and this award celebrates the dedication that goes into maintaining Hall Park to such a high standard.

International Green Flag Award scheme

Each flag honours the thousands of staff and volunteers who work tirelessly to maintain the high standards demanded by the Green Flag Award. We are proud to have so many wonderful green spaces in the UK for people to enjoy, and hope that next year, we award even more flags.

Rushden Town Council Proudly raised the Green Flag in Hall Park today with the help of the Town Mayor Cllr David Coleman and Southend Infant School. » Less
