FOULKSMILLS PARK has won a green flag in recognition of the hard work of the local committee over the years in making it an attractive place for locals and visitors to the area to enjoy.
Once again in 2022 more Green Flag Awards have been secured by Irish Parks and Gardens than by any country, other than the UK where the scheme originated in 1996. Out of 136 awarded in Europe Monday, 104 were in Ireland.
This year participating European countries include Belgium, France, Germany, Ireland, The Netherlands, Portugal, Spain and Sweden
The Green Flag Community Award extends the scheme to include community initiatives such as community gardens, community parks and Tidy Towns projects.
Anne-Marie Toomey from Foulksmills Tidy Towns said: “We are extremely proud to receive a Green Flag Community Award for our beautiful Foulksmills Park. It has been in the heart of our village for over 35 years and is a place for everyone to enjoy.”
She said the award is a recognition of all the hard work and dedication the committee has put into the park – which hosts the annual Foulksmills Duck Race – over the years.
“A huge thank you to the community and Wexford County Council who have been on the journey with us and have continued to support us over the years.”
