We’re over the moon to confirm that our brilliant town has received coveted Green Flag Awards for both Woodhouse Park and the Town Cemetery, officially recognising them as some of the country’s best parks and open spaces.
The Green Flag Award is the international quality mark for parks and green spaces
After two years that have seen our parks and green spaces play a vital role for people through lockdowns as a place to relax, exercise and meet friends and family safely, the news that Woodhouse Park and Peterlee Cemetery has achieved the Green Flag Award is testament to the hard work and dedication of the Town Council Neighbourhood Services team and all our volunteers and community partners that help us to make these green space a great space that everyone can enjoy.
