The London Borough of Hounslow has collected 11 Green Flag Awards for its parks and open spaces.
Beaversfield Park, Bedfont Lakes Country Park, Boston Manor Park, Chiswick Back Common, Church Road Allotments, Dukes Meadows Recreation Ground, Inwood Park, Lampton Park, St Dunstan’s Park, St John’s Gardens and Turnham Green have all been recognised by the Green Flag Award Scheme as some of the very best in the UK.
The sites are among a record-breaking 1,883 UK parks and green spaces that have received a prestigious Green Flag Award – the mark of a quality park or green space.
The international award, now into its third decade, is a sign to the public that the space boasts the highest possible environmental standards, is beautifully maintained and has excellent visitor facilities.
Councillor Steve Curran, Leader of Hounslow Council said: “We are absolutely delighted to receive 11 Green Flag Awards for our parks and open spaces this year, including St Dunstan’s Park for the first time.
“We know how much quality green spaces matter to residents and visitors, and this award celebrates the dedication that goes into maintaining our parks to a high standard. I would also like to thank the residents and volunteers who support our Friends Groups.”
International Green Flag Award scheme manager Paul Todd said: “We are delighted to be celebrating another record-breaking year for the Green Flag Award scheme, with more Green Flags awarded this year than last year.”
“Each flag honours the thousands of staff and volunteers who work tirelessly to maintain the high standards demanded by the Green Flag Award. We are proud to have so many wonderful green spaces in the UK for people to enjoy, and hope that next year, we award even more flags.”
