Queen’s Park has been given a Green Flag Award for the 20th consecutive year.

The 30 acre Victorian park, which has been managed by the City of London Corporation since 1887, has been praised once again for its facilities and excellent use of green space.

The award scheme is managed by environmental charity Keep Britain Tidy and is celebrating its 20th anniversary this year.

Winners are judged by an army of more than 700 green space experts, who volunteer their time to visit sites and assess them against eight strict criteria, including horticultural standards, cleanliness, sustainability and community involvement.

Paul Todd, Green Flag Award scheme manager, said: “All the flags flying this year are a testament to the efforts of the thousands of men and women, both staff and volunteers, who work tirelessly to maintain the high standards demanded by the Green Flag Award.”
