Three Rivers Parks Keep Green Flag Status Rickmansworth Aquadrome and Chorleywood House Estate

Award-winning parks in Three Rivers will see Green Flags flying with pride after retaining prestigious status.


Chorleywood House Estate, Leavesden Country Park, and the Rickmansworth Aquadrome have all retained their Green Flag status, an international award recognizing well-managed parks and green spaces.

The Green Flag Award scheme is managed by environmental charity Keep Britain Tidy under license from the Department for Levelling Up, Housing and Communities. Parks and green spaces that meet the high standards set by the scheme are awarded the Green Flag, which is a mark of excellence.

In addition to retaining its Green Flag status, Leavesden Country Park has also kept the Green Heritage Site status accreditation, which is supported by Historic England. This accreditation recognizes the park’s particular historic features, including its Grade II listed mansion, walled garden, and lake.

The Green Flag Award is a valuable recognition for the hard work that goes into maintaining these three parks. It is a testament to the commitment of the staff and volunteers who work to make them a great place for everyone to enjoy.

Cllr Chris Lloyd, Lead Member for Leisure, said: “I am extremely delighted to see that three of our fantastic parks have been recognised nationally.

“These green spaces are valued by our residents and I know that they enjoy our parks. Getting into the open for exercise and relaxation is good for our mental well-being.

“The status is also a testament to how hard our volunteers, officers, and rangers work to keep our parks of a high-quality and enjoyable. Their dedication is nothing less than first class and for that, I say thank you.”
