Cllr Brian Long, Cabinet member for Corporate Services, also highlighted some of the beautiful west Norfolk environment that is looked after by the borough council public open spaces team.
The Walks and Tower Gardens in King's Lynn and Esplanade Gardens and Boston Square Sensory Park in Hunstanton have been recognised by the Green Flag Award Scheme as some of the very best in the world.
Cllr Long said: “Quality green spaces matter to residents and visitors, possibly even more since the pandemic. This award celebrates the dedication that goes into maintaining our parks and gardens to such a high standard.
“The Walks is a busy town centre park popular with families, Tower Gardens is a peaceful, contemplative space, and the Esplanade and Boston Square Sensory Park are classic seaside attractions – they’re all so different but all maintained with expertise and hard work by our staff. I’d also like to thank our volunteers – they help look after the Esplanade Gardens through our Adopt-a-Bed scheme and truly deserve a share in this award.”
