The Green Flag Award Scheme was launched in 1996 to recognise and reward the best parks/green spaces in the country.
Green Flag Award applications are judged against the following eight key criteria;
1. A welcoming place
2. Healthy, safe and secure
3. Clean and well maintained
5. Conservation and heritage
6. Community involvement
In 2013 South Marine Park was awarded the Green Flag Award. It was first awarded Green Flag status in 2008.
