Green Flags will be flying in two of Swindon's best-loved parks from today.
Coate Water and Stanton Park have been awarded their fourth and second Green flags.
The national awards are given out for green spaces that are clean, kind to the environment and safe for families to use.
Only green spaces that are open to the public and are free to enter are eligible to win a Green Flag through the scheme, which is run by environmental charities Keep Britain Tidy, BTCV and GreenSpace.
