Greenhill Gardens has held Green Flag status since 2006. For the subsequent decade, extensive development work was carried out tackling issues of anti-social behaviour and improving this beautiful green space. The Parks Team are committed to maintaining the high standards of Greenhill Gardens as well as identifying new and emerging requirements. Please see the Management Plan for more details:
Sandsfoot Gardens was first awarded the Green Flag status in 2012. This peaceful space provides one of the best, uninterrupted views of the entire bay. It also features a Henrician castle, built by order of Henry VIII in 1541, which reopened to the public in 2012 after a successful bid to the Heritage Lottery fund. The Parks Team continue to maintain Sandsfoot Gardens and Castle to a high standard and are dedicated to seeking new ways to develop and improve this space.
