PENZANCE'S Morrab Gardens was one of seven Cornwall Council-owned parks and green spaces to have achieved national recognition for being among the best in the country.
They were given Green Flag status by Keep Britain Tidy to highlight the best parks and green spaces which are free to use and open to everyone.
Those awarded have to meet criteria including providing a welcoming, health, safe and secure environment, as well as be clean and well maintained and involve the local community.
"I'm delighted these seven popular parks and gardens have retained their Green Flag status," said Councillor Edwina Hannaford, Cornwall Council portfolio holder for environment, heritage and planning. The other Green Flag winners included Gyllyngdune Gardens, Falmouth; Kit Hill Country Park, Tamar Valley; Queen Mary Gardens, Falmouth; and Tuckingmill Valley Park, Camborne.
