Enfield parks retain Green Flag Status

Published Monday, 28 July 2014

Enfield Council has once again retained its Green Flag status in eight of its parks

The Green Flag Award scheme recognises and rewards the best open spaces in the country. Enfield is one of the greenest boroughs in London and the council manages acres of parkland and open spaces for the public to enjoy and explore.
 
Bush Hill Park, Trent Country Park, Jubilee Park, Oakwood Park, Town Park, Forty Hall Park, Grovelands Park and Pymmes Park are the parks in Enfield which retained their awards once again.
 
Enfield Council's Cabinet Member for Environment and Community Safety Cllr Chris Bond, said: “This is fantastic news for Enfield and especially for those succesful Parks. The Parks staff, past and present along with the Friends Groups continue to do a marvellous job in providing first rate facilities in parks across the borough for everyone to enjoy during the difficult economic period.
 
“I’d urge residents this summer to go out and see what is happening in our Parks. Entertainment, new rivers, Cycle paths, Green Gyms, pop up cinema's,  all there to be used and enjoyed.
 
"We will strive to retain our Green Flags and working with the Friends Groups improve the parks experience in Enfield."
