Four Wyre parks have been praised after being awarded Green Flag status.

Vicarage Park in Poulton, Hawthorne Park in Thornton, the Wyre Estuary Country Park in Stanah and Kepple Lane in Garstang have all been singled out for the honour.

Green Flag status is considered the benchmark standard for parks and open spaces in the UK. It is awarded based on quality of maintenance, safety, conservation work taking place and community involvement.

Wyre Estuary Country Park won the award for the tenth year in a row.

Coun Vivien Taylor, Wyre Council cabinet member with responsibility for parks, said: “We proudly shout about all our green spaces but green flags officially show visitors that they are among the best in the country.

“It’s particularly pleasing Kepple Lane earned a flag at the first time of asking.”
