The Green Flag Scheme is the national standard for parks and green spaces in England. Awards are given on an annual basis following a rigorous examination by external judges with each site judged on its own merits and suitability to the community it serves.

Enfield already has Green Flags for the following parks: Enfield Town, Forty Hall, Jubilee, Pymmes, Grovelands, Oakwood and now Trent.

Cllr Chris Bond, Cabinet Member for Environment, Street Scene and Parks said "I am delighted to hear that Trent Park has gained a Green Flag. To gain an Award requires extremely high standards, and each application is judged on its own merits.

"I would like to thank local residents, the Friends of Trent Park and all the parks staff for joining together to help gain this meritable award.

"What never ceases to amaze me is that whatever time of year you visit Trent Park, in whatever weather, it is always busy. When we went down there the playground was full of children having fun.

"Let's hope the new Green Flag brings even more visitors to Trent Park."
