Best green spaces in the UK
The University of Nottingham’s University Park and Jubilee campuses have once again been recognised by the Green Flag Award Scheme as two of the best green spaces in the UK.
Both of the campuses have won a Green Flag Award for 2018/19 – a sign to all that the spaces boast the highest possible environmental standards, are beautifully maintained and have excellent visitor facilities.
Back in 2003, Nottingham was the first ever university to be awarded a prestigious Green Flag Award, when the award was given to University Park. It’s now the 16th year in a row that University Park has received the award – and this year also marks the sixth time that the award has been received by Jubilee campus.
The campuses are among a record-breaking 1,883 UK parks and green spaces that have achieved a Green Flag Award this year.
International Green Flag Award scheme manager Paul Todd said: “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.”
