Frimley Lodge Park has won Green Flag status for the 12th successive year running, highlighting it as one of the best parks in the country.
The 24 hectare site attracts a large number of visitors with its vast open spaces, picnic areas, Pistachios in the Park café, pitch and putt course, two children's playgrounds, miniature railway and barbecue and private hire areas.
Green Flag is the national award for public and community parks created to recognise well-managed, high-quality green spaces.
The flag was recently unveiled at Flourish Community Garden situated within Frimley Lodge Park as part of Love Parks Week which ran from 21 to 29 July.
Events put on in the park during Love Parks Week included a Canal Dipping and Mini-Beast Hunt for younger visitors and an Olympic themed family event with nature trail to celebrate London 2012.
Surrey Heath's portfolio holder responsible for green spaces, Councillor Craig Fennell said: "With so much variety, Frimley Lodge Park is a fabulous place to visit which is demonstrated by the park's popularity and the thousands of people who come here each year.
"We are very proud to have gained this award again and it's thanks to the continued commitment and excellent work put in by the Surrey Heath Greenspace team, dedicated volunteers and our contractors Glendale in maintaining the park's high standards."
