Frimley Lodge Park has been recognised by the Green Flag Award Scheme as one of the best in the country – for the 18th year running!

The 24-hectare park is among a record-breaking 1,883 UK parks and green spaces that have received a prestigious Green Flag Award – the mark of a quality park or green space.

This international award is a sign to the public that the space boasts the highest possible environmental standards, is beautifully maintained and has excellent visitor facilities.

Owned and maintained by Surrey Heath Borough Council, Frimley Lodge Park attracts a large number of visitors with its beautiful open spaces, picnic areas, pitch and putt course, children’s playgrounds; as well as a miniature railway and barbecue and private hire areas.

Other attractions include a 3G all-weather football pitch, traditional football and cricket pitches, and a café.

The Mayor of Surrey Heath Cllr Dan Adams attended the unveiling of the flag at the Frimley Lodge Miniature Railway in the park, along with SHBC Executive Head of Business Daniel Harrison, and other members of the Business and Greenspace teams.

Cllr Adams said: “It’s a very special achievement for Frimley Lodge Park to receive its 18th consecutive Green Flag Award.

“Good quality green spaces are very important to residents and visitors, and this award is recognition for the hard work and dedication that goes into maintaining Frimley Lodge Park to such a high standard.

“Congratulations to everyone involved.”

International Green Flag Award scheme manager Paul Todd said: “It has been a record-breaking year for Green Flag Awards, and it’s fantastic to see such a diverse range of locations have been recognised.

“We are proud to have so many wonderful green spaces in the UK for people to experience, and encourage the public to head outdoors, explore their local area and find even more unexpected green spaces they can enjoy.”
