Green Flag Award
The national standard for parks and open spaces in England and Wales recognises and rewards the best green spaces in the country with Green Flag Status and for 2019, a record breaking 1,970 green spaces across the UK have achieved this recognition, including 9 of our very own.
The Green Flag Status for 2019 was awarded to the following parks:
- Claybury Park
- Clayhall Park
- Elmhurst Gardens
- Goodmayes Park
- Hainault Forest Country Park
- Ilford War Memorial
- Seven Kings Park
- South Park
- Valentines Park
The criteria by which each site is judged are grouped under eight main headings that outline the standards that a Green Flag must achieve and set targets for improvement as follows:
- welcome park
- healthy, safe and secure
- well maintained and clean
- conservation and heritage
- community involvement
The media and public are becoming increasingly aware that a site flying a Green Flag is a high quality green space.
On behalf of The London Borough of Redbridge, the Vision Redbridge Culture & Leisure Trust is committed to improving the quality of the facilities available in our area and achieving the Green Flag Award is all part of our strategy to make Redbridge a better place to live.
