Castle Gardens Is Still Officially One Of The UKs Best Green Spaces

12th November 2010

Lisburn's Castle Gardens was recently awarded the prestigious Green Flag Award for the third consecutive time in recognition of it being one of the UK's best green spaces.

Green Flag status is awarded to the best parks and public open spaces in the UK and the Castle Gardens in Lisburn again impressed the judges with its excellent use of open space, well-maintained facilities and high standard of safety and security.

Councillor Jenny Palmer, Chairman of the Council's Economic Development Committee, said: “ The objective of the Green Flag Award scheme is to encourage the provision of good quality public spaces. The Council is delighted that the Castle Gardens have retained this important accolade for the third consecutive year.”

“It is clear to anyone visiting the Gardens that they are well maintained and managed and the Green Flag reinforces this. The Council continues to be committed, with continued support from the Heritage Lottery Fund, to the delivery of a full education and events programme in partnership with the local community and businesses to deliver public participation and economic development in the area,” she concluded.

Councillor Allan Ewart, Chairman of Lisburn Historic Quarter Partnership, speaking about the achievement, said: “It is a privilege to have this wonderful space right in the heart of our City. As part of the Lisburn Historic Quarter Strategy, we aim to encourage more visitors and add vibrancy to the Historic Quarter with Castle Gardens as the jewel in the crown. Continuing to achieve the Green Flag Award status secures the status of the park as a quality attraction for all to enjoy.”

Councillor Palmer added: ”I would like to take this opportunity to congratulate the staff that are involved in Castle Gardens for their continued hard work in ensuring this facility is maintained to a high standard for enjoyment by the entire Lisburn community and those who visit the City.”
