Flying the Green Flag in Dublin City Parks

Printer-friendly version

The Green Flag Award scheme is the benchmark standard for parks and green spaces. When flying it is a sign that the area you are visiting is managed to high standards, based on criteria including a welcoming place, healthy safe and secure, sustainability, conservation and heritage, community involvement, marketing and management.  Awards which are independently verified by AnTaisce and  are given on an annual basis. Winners must apply each year to renew their status. In 2016 the Council will seek the award for Blessington St Park, Markievicz park, St. Annes Park  and a renewal for Bushy Park & Poppintree Park  current  holders of the Flag. Each site is judged on its own merits and suitability to the community it serves. Listen to Mooney Goes Wild Sunday May 8th for a  special feature from Blessington Street Park  on the City flags, the Green Flag and this hidden gem in the heart of the city.
