Jersey Farm Woodland Park in Sandridge has been given an international award for quality.
It is one of 1,797 parks and spaces across the UK to be given a Green Flag award.
Jersey Farm was chosen having demonstrated excellent environmental standards, beautiful maintenance, and excellent visitor facilities.
Chair of the park’s management committee, Cllr Janet Churchard, said: “It is a wonderful open space for bird watching, walking the dog or just getting away from it all.
“As well as guided walks we run a number of volunteer taskforce sessions which provide opportunities to learn new skills such as hedge-laying and coppicing.
