Brockwell Park is one of 12 Lambeth parks and open spaces to be awarded a Green Flag award in a government scheme run by the environmental charity Keep Britain Tidy.
The award, now in its 20th year, recognises that a space has high standards, is well maintained and has excellent facilities.
The 12 Lambeth sites are Archbishop’s Park; Brockwell Park; Hillside Gardens; Kennington Park; Milkwood Park; Myatt’s Fields Park; Ruskin Park; St. John’s Churchyard, Waterloo; St. Paul’s Churchyard, Clapham; Streatham Rookery; Vauxhall Park; and West Norwood Cemetery, which is a new addition to the list of Lambeth award winners.
Cllr Jack Hopkins, Lambeth council cabinet member for regeneration, business and culture, said: “We are absolutely delighted to receive 12 Green Flag Awards for 2016. For us, the Green Flag Award publicly recognises and celebrates the fact that people living in, working in and visiting Lambeth are benefitting from safe, accessible and welcoming green spaces that are of the very highest quality.”
