Green Flag Awards for two of Reading's most popular green spaces

Two of our most popular open spaces have once again been recognised as among the best in the country after receiving Green Flag and Green Heritage Site awards.

The Forbury Gardens and Caversham Court Gardens have both received awards.

The Green Flag recognises high-quality maintenance and excellent wildlife-and climate-friendly practices. This month, parks and green spaces across the country will be raising their Green Flag Award with pride in a year when millions of people have seen the value of having great quality green spaces on their doorstep.

As well as a Green Flag, Caversham Court Gardens has also received a Green Heritage Site award, which is awarded for parks which have conserved their historical features to a high standard and maintain their historic character and appearance. Green Heritage Site awards are made to sites that have particular local or national historic interest.
