Green Flag Award - South Bank Parklands

South Bank Parklands is one of just nine locations in Australia to hold the 2020/2021 Green Flag Award, an international accreditation given to the world’s best green spaces.

To qualify for the award, the Parklands was judged against eight key selection criteria; being a welcoming place, being healthy, safe and secure, being clean and well maintained, sustainability, conservation and heritage, community involvement, marketing and management.

The award process is stringent and demonstrates that South Bank Parklands boasts the highest possible standards, is beautifully maintained and has excellent facilities. 

It is South Bank Parklands' seventh consecutive year of receiving the award! It recognises the dedicated staff and volunteers who work tirelessly to maintain the parklands.

Other parks to have won the award around the globe for 2020/2021 include Roma Street Parkland, Queen Elizabeth Olympic Park in London, Sydney’s Centennial Park and Te Mata Park in Hawkes Bay, New Zealand.

To maintain Green Flag Award status, South Bank Parklands must undergo an annual benchmarking process from international accreditors. For more information about the Green Flag Award, head to their website.
