Residents praised as Blackrock Park earns third Park Green Flag

Residents praised aa Blackrock Park earns third Park Green Flag

For the third year in a row Blackrock Park has been awarded a Park Green Flag. The flag raising event took place last Thursday.

It is a community park in every sense with the involvement of the volunteers who work on the committee along with all the volunteer gardeners.  The time, effort and organization put into the day to day management of the Park by this small group is incalculable.

Spokesperson Eileen Guiney, thanked those who made the achievement possible.

"With the motto that 'Great Parks make Great Communities', we feel this partnership of local residents and our local Council goes a long way towards achieving this and we would like to thank them, the people of Blackrock and all the visitors to the Park for their continued support and encouragement."
