Green Flag awards - parks The Green Flag Award scheme recognises and rewards the best green spaces in the country. It was first launched in 1996 with the first awards given in 1997. Today it continues to provide the benchmark against which our parks and green spaces are measured. It is also seen as a way of encouraging high environmental standards; setting a standard of excellence in recreational green areas. Green Flags were awarded to 11 parks in Trafford in 2020/21: Davyhulme Park Denzell Gardens Flixton Park Hullard Park John Leigh Park Lostock Park Victoria Park Walkden Gardens Walton Park Woodheys Park Worthington Park Further information about the parks can be found on our dedicated Parks in Trafford page.
