Addison Howard Park


Addison Howard Park is a Green Flag Park

Every year since 2009 Addison Howard Park has been pleased to boast a Green Flag award, a nationally recognised award given to those parks that reflect the highest standards. The park joined Priory Country Park, Harrold Country Park and Bedford Park as continuous winners of this prestigious national award, run by the Civic Trust.

In recent years the development of the Green Man Community Garden has provided a focus for people of all ages and abilities to take part in gardening activities and enjoy this thriving local project in the heart of Kempston's major park.
