Royal Parks secure prestigious Green Flag Award "clean sweep"

London’s Royal Parks have been recognised as among the best in the UK, after all of them received Green Flag awards this year the international quality mark for parks and green spaces.

The Royal Parks charity manages London’s eight Royal Parks along with other important green spaces in the capital. They all secured the award together with Brompton Cemetery.
The award is the international quality mark for parks and green spaces.

All parks have also achieved the Green Heritage Site Accreditation, supported by Historic England, for the management of its historic features.

After two years that have seen parks and green spaces play a vital role for people through lockdowns as a place to relax, exercise and meet friends and family safely, the news that the Royal Parks have all achieved the Green Flag Award is testament to the hard work and dedication of the teams that make these green space a great space that everyone can enjoy.

Nicholas Petridis, The Royal Parks’ Landscape Management Officer, said: “Once again, we have shown that our staff deliver exceptional work and maintain these parks at the very highest standards to welcome visitors.

“The Green Flag and Heritage Awards have helped us aspire to meet a better standard for the Royal Parks, and to continue working as a team with a common vision. This year’s judging revealed that we achieved our highest score ever for Hyde Park and we are incredibly grateful for this accomplishment, and well done to everyone who helped us in doing this.

“We are proud of the work that we have achieved and are delighted to welcome visitors to these incredible natural spaces within the city.

The Green Flag assessment process includes a site visit to meet park teams. This includes meeting staff across park management planning, volunteer management, and biodiversity management to showcase work in the field.

Petridis added: “We are proud to celebrate the fantastic support of our community volunteers and our apprentices to share their valuable contribution with the judges.”

Keep Britain Tidy’s Accreditation Manager Paul Todd, said: “The Royal Parks are a vital green space for the community in London. This award is testament to all the hard work of staff and volunteers, who do so much to ensure that it maintains the high standards demanded by the Green Flag Award.”
