Hartland Country Park has been awarded the Green Flag Award, an international mark of quality which recognises excellent management and maintenance of green spaces in the UK and rest of the world.
The 70 acre park, between Farnborough and Fleet, boasts a BMX track, circular walk and trim trails, a children’s play area, butterfly bank, benches and picnic tables.
The country park was delivered as part of Hartland Village, a new community of 1,500 homes by St Edward.
Paul Vallone, Executive Chairman, St Edward said:
“This award recognises everything we have done to make Hartland Country Park a welcoming part of the community. We planned the park facilities in close partnership with Hart District Council to make sure there is something for everyone – whether walking your dog, having a family day out or just coming to enjoy nature.”
The judging panel praised the strong focus on increasing biodiversity and community involvement.
Adam Green, Environmental Promotions Service Manager, Hart District Council:
“Hart District Council Countryside Service and St Edward have worked hard to ensure Hartland Park is maintained to a high standard, and I am delighted that this has been recognised by winning a prestigious Green Flag Award. Quality green spaces are absolutely essential to happy, healthy communities and we will continue to manage the site in partnership, for the benefit of local people and wildlife.”
