Green Flag for Barnhill Garden

Barnhill Rock Garden in Broughty Ferry has been awarded a prestigious Green Flag by Keep Scotland Beautiful.

The Green Flag Award is the benchmark for a quality green space, and awards have been made this year to parks and gardens run by local authorities, a university and a community group.

The awards are administered in Scotland by Keep Scotland Beautiful, the independent environmental charity.

Parks are assessed by volunteer judges who usually have a background in parks management. They judge against eight criteria testing whether the park is: welcoming; healthy, safe; well-maintained; sustainable; manages conservation and heritage; has community involvement; markets itself, and has good management.
