60 parks and 56 community-managed green spaces in Wales have all been awarded Green Flags for 2013-14.

The awards are given out by environmental charity Keep Wales Tidy, and recognise and reward the best parks and green spaces in the country as well as driving up the quality of green space. Emphasis is also placed on local community involvement in the ongoing and long-term care of the area.
