Abingdon's Abbey Gardens is awarded Green Flag for tenth year in a row

Sun, 29 Jul 2018 08:45 by Guy Langton

Abbey Gardens in Abingdon has been recognised by the prestigious Green Flag Award Scheme as one of the great green spaces and parks in the country… for the tenth year running.

The area, which is also a scheduled ancient monument, is maintained by Vale of White Horse District Council. It received its first Green Flag Award in 2009 following a five-year restoration project to transform the site to the way it looked in its Victorian heyday. More »

This is its tenth annual international award, which is a sign to the public that the space boasts the highest possible environmental standards, is beautifully maintained and has excellent visitor facilities.

The Green Flag site says of the park: "The Abbey Gardens offers visitors a quiet retreat where they can relax, enjoy the flower displays, explore the archaeology or take part in informal recreational activities. The park also hosts a number of community events throughout the year."

Cllr Elaine Ware, cabinet member for housing and environment for the Vale of White Horse District Council said: "We are over the moon to receive a Green Flag Award for the tenth year in a row. It shows that not only can we attain the high standards expected by those giving the award, we can maintain those standards for a decade.

"The staff keep the gardens beautiful for everyone to enjoy, through all the seasons including the recent hot weather, which is trying for any gardener.

"We know how much quality green spaces matter to residents and visitors, and this award really does celebrate the dedication that goes into maintaining Abbey Gardens to such a high standard."

International Green Flag Award scheme manager Paul Todd said: "Each flag honours the thousands of staff and volunteers who work tirelessly to maintain the high standards demanded by the Green Flag Award. We are proud to have so many wonderful green spaces in the UK for people to enjoy, and hope that next year, we award even more flags."

Notes to editors

The Green Flag Awards Scheme (http://greenflagaward.org/) is run by the environmental charity Keep Britain Tidy, under licence from the Ministry of Housing, Communities and Local Government, in partnership with Keep Scotland Beautiful, Keep Wales Tidy and Keep Northern Ireland Beautiful.

The Abbey Gardens are located near to the town centre of Abingdon and are designated as a Scheduled Ancient Monument as the Abingdon Abbey, which dates back to the seventh century, once stood on the site. The layout of the outer wall to the abbey is marked on the ground with stone blocks, and interpretation boards in the park give an impression of how the site would have looked when the Abbey was there.

The gardens comprise of two main areas; the formal garden area with flower beds, herbaceous borders, seating and an Italian walkway; and open parkland with a number of mature trees, an ornamental lake and a Folly that stands near a statue of Queen Victoria.
