Celebrating receiving the Green Flag Award 2019

The International Green Flag Award, administered in Scotland by environmental charity Keep Scotland Beautiful, acts as a benchmark for recreational outdoor space.

The award celebrates well-maintained parks and greenspaces and supports the opportunities that they provide to enable exercise, improve mental wellbeing and provide safe spaces for play. Almost 2,000 parks across the world have achieved the award.

The Stirling parks celebrating their 2019 Green Flag awards are:

The play areas are suitable for all ages with structures for climbing, swinging and water play for smaller children. There are plenty of facilities suitable for older children with the parks flying fox, and a multi-use games area which is lined for netball, basketball and 5-a-sides, so remember your sports ball for recreational play. 

Toilets with disabled access are located on-site with various opening times. The park is situated near to local shops and restaurants with bicycle parking. 

The War Memorial which commemorates the residents of Causewayhead who lost their lives or were reported missing in the First and Second World War is adjacent to the park.
