THE green flag is flying for a Portsmouth park that has been recognised for being a warm and welcoming place.
Milton Park, in Milton Road, has been given a national Green Flag Award.
This is the third green flag for the city, alongside Hilsea Lines and Baffins Pond.
Milton Park achieved the award after scoring well against the eight criteria used in judging including; a welcoming place, clean and well maintained, sustainability, conservation and heritage and management.
Councillor Lee Hunt, cabinet member for culture, leisure and sport at Portsmouth City Council, said: ‘For Portsmouth to receive its third green flag for the third year running shows our commitment to parks and wildlife, in the interest of the environment and residents.’
