Environmental charity Keep Wales Tidy has unveiled this year’s Green Flag Award winners – the international mark of a quality park or green space.
Llanfallteg Park has achieved the coveted Green Flag Community Award in recognition of its high environmental standards, cleanliness, safety, and community involvement.
Llanfallteg Park is an idyllic community park in West Carmarthenshire, Wales. Managed by a registered charity and group of dedicated volunteers, the park is a valued community asset and is a Queens Elizabeth II Field in Trust.
The Green Flag award is testament to the hard work, dedication and pride that our volunteers put into maintaining this green space for everyone to enjoy. It is a diverse space, providing something for all ages and abilities, from children's play equipment, to disability friendly exercise equipment and peaceful spaces to sit and enjoy the surrounding nature gardens. We've always strived to get people involved in the development of the park, encouraging a sense of ownership and pride in those who use it. We hope the Green Flag Award will further distil those values across the community – Park Secretary.
180 community managed green spaces across the country have met the high standards needed to receive the Green Flag Community Award.
Now in its third decade, Green Flag recognises well-managed parks and green spaces in 20 countries around the world.
In Wales, the awards scheme is run by Keep Wales Tidy. Lucy Prisk, Green Flag Coordinator for Keep Wales Tidy said:
“Free access to safe, high quality green space has never been more important. Our award-winning sites play a vital role in people’s mental and physical well-being, providing a haven for communities to come together, relax and enjoy nature.
“News that a record number of community managed green spaces in Wales have achieved Green Flag status is testament to the dedication and hard work of hundreds of volunteers. We’re delighted to be able to celebrate their success on the world stage.”

Children's Shelter & Graffiti Workshop
May 2023: Our latest developments with thanks to grant funding has been the construction of a childrens shelter in the toddlers area and the art installation across the storage shed. A local graffiti artist held a workshop with some of the local children to create a fitting visual display that represents the community, history and natural setting of the Playing Field.
We have also installed a flag pole on the end of the storage shed to fly a variety of flags at particular times of the year, so watch out for that.
