Wivenhoe Park, home to Wivenhoe House hotel, has been given a prestigious Green Flag Award for the second year running.
The international award is the mark of a high quality park or green space and is now in its third decade. It shows the park boasts the highest possible environmental standards, is beautifully maintained and has excellent visitor facilities.
Our historic parkland, also home to the University of Essex, is among a record-breaking 1,883 UK parks and green spaces to receive a Green Flag Award this year.
Marcus Clayton Grounds Manager said: “We are absolutely delighted to receive a Green Flag Award for the second year running.
“We know how much quality green spaces matter to residents and visitors, and this award celebrates the dedication that goes into maintaining Wivenhoe Park to such a high standard.”
International Green Flag Award scheme manager Paul Todd said: “We are delighted to be celebrating another record-breaking year for the Green Flag Award scheme, with more Green Flags awarded this year than last year.”
