Botanical Gardens in running for international award

Green flag awards

Gisborne’s Botanical Gardens is in the running for a Green Flag Award, an international non-profit accreditation scheme that recognises and rewards well-managed parks and green spaces.

The Green Flag Award proudly flies above more than 2000 places in over 15 countries around the world.

Two judges visited Gisborne last month for a site visit and judged the park against eight key criteria - a welcoming place, healthy safe and secure, well-maintained and clean, environmental management, biodiversity, landscape and heritage, community involvement, marketing and communication and management.

Award recipients will be announced in November.
