Westgate Parks is an excellent example of a quality Green Flag Award park which fully understands and engages with its users with its users with a strong ethos of environmental sustainability and volunteering. The thoughtful and considered improvements via the Heritage Lottery fund have transformed this site and its community into a park that should be celebrated. From the planting style throughout the park, the murals on the underpass, the physic garden and all the interpretation it was a pleasure to judge this park.

There is no doubt that the success is down to the people involved and particularly the Westgate Parks officer. It was great to meet such a committed group of volunteers who will try their hand at anything. Huge congratulations to all involved.
