11 of Trafford’s parks and green spaces will be raising and flying Green Flags for the fourth year in a row.
The award-winning parks, which have been recognised as the some of the very best green spaces in the world are:
- Davyhulme Park
- Denzell Gardens
- Flixton Gardens
- Hullard Park
- John Leigh Park
- Lostock Park
- Victoria Park
- Walkden Gardens
- Walton Park

Trafford’s Green Flag Award parks are managed by the One Trafford Partnership, with the support of volunteer Friends of Parks groups. The teams have been working together over a number of years to ensure the Green Flag standards are met and are consistent throughout the year.
To achieve the prestigious award, the parks must meet a specific set of criteria. This includes aesthetics of the park, horticulture and biodiversity.
Executive Member for Environmental Services, Councillor Stephen Adshead said:
“I would like to congratulate everyone on achieving 11 Green Flag Awards for a fourth year running. A huge thank you to the dedicated volunteers that make up the Friends of Parks groups, our operational teams and the green space team. One Trafford and Friends have also been working together to create better, biodiverse habitats by planting daffodils, crocus and wildflower meadows.
Trafford Council are continuing investments into parks, because we know how important green spaces are to our local communities.”
