Greenfield Valley’s golden park

Published: 19/09/2016

A Flintshire park has successfully retained a national Gold Standard for a second year. Greenfield Valley Heritage Park has been accredited as a “Quality Assured Visitor Attraction” under the Visit Wales Visitor Attraction Quality Scheme (VAQAS). In an independent assessment, the park scored highly in all areas which were reviewed including pre-arrival, leaflets, websites, promotional material, price checks, accessibility, cleanliness and staff. Flintshire County Council Cabinet Member for the Environment, Councillor Bernie Attridge, said: “This is a great accolade for this excellent park and a wonderful location in Flintshire for visitors to enjoy the beauty of our local countryside. The Chair of the Greenfield Valley Heritage Park Trust and Chair of Flintshire County Council, Councillor Peter Curtis, said: “I am proud to be the Chair of a very dedicated group of people who work hard to ensure that visitors have the best experience when they visit this beautiful area. I’m delighted that Visit Wales noted that the new visitor centre was an “impressive development”. The recent renovations carried out thanks to a Heritage Lottery Fund grant of £1 million, secured by the Council and the Trust, has ensured that the park will continue to be a first class visitor attraction for years to come.
