The Den in Teignmouth has been awarded a Green Flag Award for the ninth consecutive year.
The Green Flag is an international award scheme that recognises public spaces that offer the highest possible environmental standards, are beautifully maintained and offer excellent visitor services.
Two other parks in Teignbridge were awarded a Green Flag: Decoy Country Park and Courtenay Park in Newton Abbot.
Councillor Sylvia Russell, ward member for Teignmouth East, said: “To have attained Green Flag status yet again is testament to the hard work of the green spaces team and the outside staff throughout the district. It is particularly welcome in Teignmouth as over the last year the town has had considerable disruption on the seafront due to unavoidable sea defence work, which has meant a lot more effort from everyone to keep up our high standards.”
Chrissie Drew, Teignbridge District Council’s Green Spaces Project Officer added: “We appreciate how much quality green spaces matter to our residents and visitors. This award celebrates the dedication that goes into maintaining them to such a high standard.”
