A Green Flag flying overhead is a sign to the public that the space boasts the highest possible standards, is beautifully maintained and has excellent facilities.
Coun Philip Shields, Portfolio Holder for the Environment at Mansfield District Council, said: “We are absolutely delighted that King George V Park has received a Green Flag Award for the first time.
“This is down to the huge efforts of our Parks staff, who have worked so hard to bring this about.
“We have also worked very closely with the staff and pupils of Berry Hill and St Peters schools. Mansfield can be very proud of the fact that we now have five top rated parks.”
