Buchan Country Park wins sixth Green Flag award

The park is one of the best in Britain - and that’s official.


Buchan Country Park, near Crawley, has been named as one of the best parks in Britain.

The country park, which is owned and managed by West Sussex County Council, has won a prestigious Green Flag Award for a sixth consecutive year.

The national award, which is given by environmental charity Keep Britain Tidy, recognises and rewards the best parks and green spaces across the country.

Buchan Country Park is one of more than 1,500 parks and green spaces to have been honoured this year.

Robin Edwards, Senior Countryside Ranger at the park, said: “We are extremely proud and honoured to have been recognised yet again with another Green Flag award.

“The park is home to an incredibly diverse environment and it teems with wildlife – we work hard with volunteers to ensure visitors are able to really enjoy the time they spend here.”

David Barling, County Council Cabinet Member for Residents’ Services, added: “We are delighted to once again receive a Green Flag Award for Buchan Country Park.

“This is a benchmark standard that reflects the park meets the highest possible standards.

“We have long known that the park is a jewel in the West Sussex crown and this award proves it.

“It is thanks to the hard work of a small team of staff and volunteers who work tirelessly maintaining the high standards of the park. Well done to each and every one of them.”

Buchan Country Park is open to visitors all year round.

A variety of activities take place throughout the year, ensuring families can enjoy all the park has to offer.
