Green by Nature NZ is proud to announce that we are responsible for maintaining nearly half of the recently awarded Green Flag Parks in New Zealand!

The Green Flag Park Awards are the pinnacle of recognition for parks and green spaces, honouring the highest standards of excellence in management, planning, sustainability, and community engagement.

As Arthur Nelson, Parks and Property Manager at Horowhenua District Council, aptly puts it, ‘The award goes to the heart of the community and allows Council to listen, hear and respond in partnership with its stakeholders’.

Beyond mere acknowledgment, these awards represent our dedication to crafting and sustaining outstanding green spaces. We transform these spaces into vibrant hubs that seamlessly integrate with and enrich the communities they serve. More than mere recreational havens, these parks stand as integral components of our communities, fostering social cohesion, promoting health and well-being, and, consequently, elevating the overall quality of life for residents.

Heartfelt congratulations are extended to Hastings District Council, Masterton District Council, and Horowhenua District Council for their steadfast commitment to creating and maintaining these exceptional green spaces. Our local teams, in close collaboration with these councils, take immense pride in contributing to the attainment of this prestigious recognition.
