Green Flag Award Scheme
The Green Flag Award® scheme is the benchmark national standard for parks and green spaces in the UK
The scheme was launched in 1996 to recognise and reward the best green spaces in the country. The first awards were given in 1997 and today the scheme continues to provide the benchmark against which our parks and green spaces are measured.
There are currently seven parks in the Vale of Glamorgan that have been awarded a Green Flag.
Alexandra Park is a well-preserved Edwardian public park in an attractive location overlooking the Bristol Channel, retaining many of its original features.
Central Park is conveniently located in the centre of the town, right next door to the Town Hall and Barry Central Library, and a stone's throw way from a selection of cafes and shops.
Small late-Victorian park in central Penarth set in tree-lined streets and bordered by informal groupings of terraced and semi-detached villas.
Romilly Park is a CADW grade II listed park and has a bowling green, tennis courts, children’s play area, seasonal floral displays and a large open area for recreation.
Classic historic park tucked away in Cadoxton on the eastern side of Barry. It offers a unique blend of traditional and modern features within its 6.5acres.
Open space over looking Barry Island promenade with views of the beach and sea. Beautiful selection of colourful flowerbeds, grass areas and a bandstand.
The Knap Gardens are an oasis of calm, with its flower-filled borders, a sunken garden and gently tinkling fountain.
