Record number of Green Flags flying above Havering's parks

A record 14 Green Flags now fly above Havering's Parks.

A Green Flag is awarded for a park that is amongst the best in the country, where they achieve the highest possible standards and include outstanding facilities.

Cllr Osman Dervish, the Cabinet Member for Environment, said:

“This is the most successful year ever, we are absolutely delighted to receive Green Flag Award for Langtons Gardens for the first time as well as retaining the awards for our other 13 parks, some of which have held this status now for over a decade.

“We know what our parks and open spaces mean to our residents and visitors. The Green Flag awards are also recognition of all the hard work put in by council staff as well as members and volunteers from the friends of parks groups. This dedication has been rewarded and our parks can be enjoyed by everyone across the borough.”
