LURGAN Park is once again flying the Green Flag for the borough.

For the fourth consecutive year Lurgan Park has retained the award – underlining that it is one of the premiere parks in both Northern Ireland and Ireland.

Lurgan Park is the largest urban park in Northern Ireland and attracts in the region of 2,000 visitors each weekend who come to enjoy the facilities or spectate at the various sporting events which take place at the 259 acre parkland.

The Green Flag award scheme is a national standard and a means of recognising and rewarding the best parks and green spaces in the country.

“I am delighted that both Lurgan Park and Bann Boulevard continue to boast the Green Flag status. I am particularly proud and pleased for the staff; it is great to see their hard work and dedication recognised. Along with the local community they work hard to maintain the parks to a high standard so they are places for everyone to enjoy,” said Councillor Ronnie Harkness, chair of leisure service committee.
