Leon Recreation Ground is officially one of the best parks in the UK – and now has the prestigious national Green Flag Award to prove it. The Bletchley space has once again been awarded the title, and the Green Flag flying overhead, without a doubt, lets everybody know that the area is beautifully maintained and has excellent facilities. Leon Recreation Ground was established during the latter part of the 19th century. The park boasts good play provision for people of all ages, a park gym, ample seating and mature European lime trees. The park also hosts the annual Bletchley and Fenny Stratford Carnival, Midsummer Madness.
Speaking about the award Councilor Liz Gifford, MK Council’s Cabinet Member responsible for Community Services said: ““We are absolutely delighted to once again receive a Green Flag Award for Leon Recreation Ground from Keep Britain Tidy. “This award recognizes and highlights that people in Bletchley are benefitting from a green space of the very highest quality.”
