Parks & Countryside
Carrickfergus Borough is recognised both locally and nationally for its Parks & Countryside. Not only has the region won 'Ulster in Bloom' six times, but it has been runner-up in 'Britain in Bloom' five times. Much of this is down to the dedicated and hard working team of staff, volunteers and partners who make up the Parks & Countryside Service.
Everyone on the Parks & Countryside team is committed to improving and extending the amount of high quality public green space that is open to residents and visitors to use and enjoy. To help us achieve this we adhere to nine Core Principles:
- Parks to be Proud of - improving the quality of the Borough's greenspace through current and future investment.
- Bringing the Parks to Life - making our parks open and accessible to all user groups.
- A Partnership with the Community - encouraging a sense of ownership through our 'community involvement scheme'.
- Parks with a Presence - maintaining a staff presence in parks and giving each park a clear identity.
- The Healthy Living Centre - ensuring that our greenspace contributes significantly towards the improvement of health for all who live, visit and work in the Borough.
- A Safe Environment for All - improving safety in parks and reducing anti-social behaviour and the fear it causes.
- Promoting Sustainability - contributing to the Council's objectives in sustainability, bio-diversity and the promotion of Local Agenda 21.
- Urban Regeneration and Social Renewal - Establish greenspace provision as a core element in the Borough's programme of social and economic regeneration and urban renewal.
- Citizenship - encouraging Citizens to view their gardens as extensions of the Borough's greenspace.
