Eastwood’s award-winning Rouken Glen Park has gained its seventh Green Flag Award, in recognition of the benefits it brings to the community.

It’s the seventh successive year in which the park has been awarded a Green Flag, which acknowledges the quality outdoor space that it provides for local people.

Environment convener Councillor Alan Lafferty joined parks staff and children from Glenwood Familty Centre to unfurl the banner signifying the latest honour.

He said: ““Rouken Glen Park holds a very special place in the heart of its visitors and I’m thrilled that it’s been awarded another Green Flag.

“This award is the icing on the cake for Rouken Glen as it celebrates being crowned the UK’s Best Park earlier this year.

“Of course we wouldn’t receive these awards if it wasn’t for our dedicated and hard working parks staff who deserve all of the credit, so a massive thank you goes to all of them.”
