More than one-hundred parks across our region have been recognised as some of the best green spaces in the country.
The Green Flag awards are issued by the environmental charity Keep Britain Tidy, which judges parks on their cleanliness, sustainability and community involvement.
Essex and Hertfordshire are leading the way in this region, each collecting around 30 Green Flag awards. In Cambridgeshire, eight green spaces were recognised.
