Mooragh Park receives Green Flag Award

Mooragh Park in Ramsey has received another international award for its contribution to the local community and environment.

The landmark in the northern town has received another Green Flag Award by Keep Britain Tidy - the accolades are considered the benchmark national standard for parks and green spaces across the British Isles as well as in Europe, Australia and New Zealand.

The award takes into account environmental, management, planning,  operational policies along with community involvement.

Chairman of Ramsey Town Commissioners, Andy Cowie, says: "It is testament to the hard work of the Gardening team, who, despite several weeks of lockdown and a huge backlog of vegetation and planting to manage around the town, have kept the park in pristine condition.

"As well as the regular users of the park, we have also hosted the Gran Fondo weekend and the Mooragh Family Funday, both of which were extremely well-attended and very popular.

"Whilst it was disappointing to be unable to complete the refurbishment of the water play feature this summer, the availability of the boating and numerous sports facilities within the park area have been warmly received and provided excellent leisure facilities on our doorstep."

Work on the water park play feature started earlier this year and will resume once off-Island specialists are able to travel to the Island.

The park has a vast range of facilities including a 12 acre boating lake, playground, flood lit tennis and basketball courts, mini golf putting green, crown green bowling green, outdoor adult exercise equipment, skate park as well as ample free parking and a BMX track.
