Fleet Pond recognised as one of UK’s very best green spaces

Fleet Pond Nature Reserve in Hampshire has been recognised by the Green Flag Award Scheme as one of the very best in the UK.

The Nature Reserve is among a record-breaking 1,970 UK parks and green spaces and 131 in thirteen other countries around the world, which will receive a prestigious Green Flag Award – the mark of a quality park or green space.

This international award, now into its third decade, is a sign to the public that the space boasts the highest possible environmental standards, is beautifully maintained and has excellent visitor facilities.

Chairman of Hart District Council, Cllr Sharyn Wheale, said: “We are absolutely delighted to receive a Green Flag Award for Fleet Pond for the fourth year in a row. We know how much quality green spaces matter to residents and visitors, and this award celebrates the dedication that goes into maintaining Fleet Pond to such a high standard.”

Hampshire’s country parks and nature reserves offer a fantastic day out, with picnic sites, play areas, visitor centres, nature trails and plenty of fresh air. To discover even more beautiful green spaces in Hampshire, continue reading on Visit Hampshire.
