Enfield parks retain Green Flag status!

Published Tuesday, 28 July 2015

Enfield Council has retained 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 705 hectares of parkland, which includes 124 parks 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 this year.

Enfield Council's Cabinet Member for Environment, Cllr Daniel Anderson, said: “This is fantastic news for Enfield and especially for those successful parks.

“The parks staff, along with the friends groups, continues to do a marvellous job in ensuring our parks and open spaces across the borough provide first-rate facilities for everyone to enjoy.

“I’d urge residents to come out and see what is happening in our parks. Fantastic festivals, new greenways, outdoor gyms and guided walks, all there to be enjoyed. There is also the fabulous new wetlands at Pymmes Park, which not only tackles pollution, but is also a haven for wildlife.

“We will strive to retain our Green Flags and continue to work with the friends groups to improve the parks experience in Enfield."
