Queen’s Park has been recognised and rewarded for its eco credentials.

The park, managed by City of London Corporation, has received a Green Flag for its top facilities and excellent use of its 12-hectare space.

It has also received a Green Heritage Award in recognition of its historic features and the high standard of conservation.

Karina Dostalova, chairwoman of the Hampstead Heath, Queen’s Park and Highgate Wood Committee, said: “Queen’s Park is a green haven in one of the most densely populated parts of London.

“We would not be able to maintain it without the support of our committed staff and enthusiastic volunteers who help to keep the site in peak condition year to year.”

Open to the public since 1887, the park includes tennis courts, a pétanque pitch, an ornamental garden, a children’s playground with paddling pool, and a café.

The Green Flag Awards Scheme is run by the environmental charity Keep Britain Tidy.
