A PARK in Penzance has won an award recognising it as one of the top green spaces in the country.

The Princess May Recreation Ground received the Green Flag Community Award, which is given to show that the park is a quality green space, managed by volunteers within the community.

The scheme, which is run by Keep Britain Tidy, aims to keep up the high standard of green spaces and parks around the UK.

Judges visited Penzance in July to assess Princess May Recreation Ground on its merit and sustainability within the community it serves.

Chairman of the Princess May Recreation Trust, Melville Durrant, said the trust was delighted.

He added: "As an organisation, we seek to make the rec an integral part of the local community, maintaining its high standards while working to improve it each year, to keep it among the finest parks in the country."

Cormac Solutions manage the grounds. It joins Morrab Gardens, also in Penzance, which has already been awarded Green Flag status.
