Its status was even confirmed in 2017 when Sheffield was named the UK’s sixth greenest city by mapping company Esri UK – the study found that more than 22 per cent of the local landscape was made up of greenery.

Fifteen of Sheffield’s parks have been deemed to be so well-managed that they have been given Green Flag Awards for 2020/21, some for the fifteenth year running.

The scheme, managed by environmental charity Keep Britain Tidy, is designed to set a benchmark for the UK and the rest of the world.

To win one of the annual awards, parks must meet the highest environmental standards, have exceptional facilities and be excellently maintained.

These are the sites with Green Flag Awards in Sheffield – and they’re all free to visit.
