Enfield's Flag-tastic parks

Published Monday, 23 July 2012

All eight parks in Enfield which received a Green Flag Award last year have retained their status it has been announced.

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 hundreds of acres of parkland and open space open 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 with Pymmes Park having retained the award for the past seven years

Enfield Council's Cabinet Member for Environment, Cllr Chris Bond, said: "I'm delighted our parks have retained the Green Flag Awards despite us making significant savings in the Parks Team as a direct result of unprecedented government spending cuts.

"This is a testament to the hard work and dedication of the Council's parks team and the many friends of parks groups they work with who give up their time to improve the wide open spaces in this borough for the benefit of everyone.

"Enfield is a green and pleasant borough and we are determined to encourage as many people to visit our parks as we can by providing an exciting, varied and innovative range of activities in them for people to enjoy.

"We will continue to strive to retain our Green Flag Awards and win more in the future to demonstrate the excellence of our outdoor facilities."
