Today, we're celebrating receiving a Green Flag Award for Ferry Meadows for another year.

We're one of 2208 winners across the UK, recognised with this international quality mark award for parks and green spaces.

After two years that have seen our parks and green spaces play a vital role for people through lockdowns as a place to relax, exercise and meet friends and family safely, the news that Ferry Meadows has achieved the Green Flag Award again is testament to the hard work and dedication of the team that make the green space a great space that everyone can enjoy.

Commenting on the news that Ferry Meadows has met the Green Flag Award standard, Keep Britain Tidy’s Accreditation Manager Paul Todd said: “I would like to congratulate everyone involved in making Ferry Meadows worthy of a Green Flag Award.

“Ferry Meadows is a vital green space for the community in Peterborough. This award is testament to all the hard work of staff and volunteers, who do so much to ensure that it maintains the high standards demanded by the Green Flag Award.”

Oliver Burke, Head of Operations at Nene Park Trust said, "It’s fantastic that once again Ferry Meadows has been recognised as an amazing open space and resource for the people of Peterborough and the surrounding region, with another Green Flag award.  It's credit to our staff and volunteers who work tirelessly to ensure the park and its facilities are the best they can be and that the landscape of Ferry Meadows is both inspiring for our visitors, but also an important refuge for nature."

The Green Flag Award scheme, managed by environmental charity Keep Britain Tidy under licence from the Department for Levelling Up, Housing and Communities, recognises and rewards well-managed parks and green spaces, setting the benchmark standard for the management of green spaces across the United Kingdom and around the world.
