Parks in Abbots Leigh, Nailsea, Pill and Portishead have received a quality-based award.

Abbots Pool, Trendlewood Park, Watchhouse Hill and the Lake Grounds have been granted a Green Flag Award for their good maintenance and high environmental standards.

Peter Bryant, North Somerset Council’s executive member for parks, said it is ‘absolutely delighted’ to retain the awards.

He said: “It’s a testament to all involved in managing and maintaining these sites, including all the individual friends groups and council contractors Glendale and Somerset Wood Recycling.

“It is an outstanding achievement to be recognised.

“We know how much quality green spaces matter to residents and visitors and this award celebrates the dedication which goes into maintaining these sites to such a high standard.”

Three Weston parks – Prince Consort Gardens, Jubilee Park and Uphill Hill – also won a Green Flag.
