Parks bosses are celebrating after Peel Park was awarded the prestigious Green Flag.
Eight parks and open spaces in the borough now hold the award, which recognises and rewards the best parks and green spaces across the country.
A Green Flag flying overhead is a sign to the public that the space boasts the highest possible standards, is beautifully maintained and has excellent facilities. Accrington Cemetery and Crematorium, Wilson Playing Fields and Woodlands, Lowerfold Park, Cutwood Park, Oakhill Park, Mercer Park and Gatty Park all maintained the status.
Coun Ken Moss, Hyndburn council’s cabinet member for parks, said: “We are absolutely delighted to receive Green Flag Award recognition from Keep Britain Tidy for eight of our parks and open spaces.
"A lot of hard work, by a lot of people has gone into getting these Green Flags and their award is a testament to the sterling job done by the many community groups and staff involved.
"The fact that we now have eight sites holding the prestigious Green Flag is great news for everyone, as this shows that they are well managed and maintained.”
