Meeting up with various members of the Friends of the parks groups he officially raised the Grovelands Green Flag to signify this special status.

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 many 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.

Cllr Anderson said “This is fantastic news for Enfield and especially for those successful parks.

“Parks staff 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 autumn to go out and see what is happening in our parks. Entertainment, cycle paths, outdoor gyms, guided walks and new play equipment,  all there to be used and enjoyed.

"We will do everything we can to retain our Green Flags and work with the Friends Groups to improve the parks experience in Enfield."
