Top Marks for Kensington Gardens

The outcome of the recent Green Flag and Green Heritage judging that took place in Kensington Gardens back in May has been revealed. For both Green Flag and Green Heritage Awards Kensington Gardens has achieved an overall score of 80+ which is the uppermost banding.

What is really pleasing is that the score for Green Heritage has been elevated in both the desk assessment and field assessment categories moving Kensington Gardens up a band in each. This in part is a function of the time Kensington Gardens took with the new management and operations plan as well as evidence of continual improvement on the ground.

Andy Williams, Park Manager for Kensington Gardens, will be working with the park management team to review the detailed feedback received from the judges in order to set out a response and carry through any further improvements.

Andy Williams has passed on his thanks to the Friends of Hyde Park and Kensington Gardens for their contributions both on the day of the judging, and every other day, in helping to improve this impressive, rich, historic park.
