In a record-breaking year for the Green Flag Award, as the scheme marks its Silver Jubilee, Canary Wharf’s Jubilee Park is one of hundreds celebrating success.
This month, Canary Wharf Group raised a Green Flag Award at Jubilee Park. The award is the international quality mark for parks and green spaces.
After 18 months that have seen our 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 Jubilee Park has achieved the Green Flag Award is testament to the hard work and dedication of the team that make the green space a place that everyone can enjoy.
Jubilee Park joins parks and green spaces as diverse as the National Memorial Arboretum in Staffordshire, Woodhouse Park in Peterlee and Chiswick Old Cemetery in London.
Commenting on the news that Jubilee Park has achieved the Green Flag Award standard, Green Flag Award Scheme Manager Paul Todd said: “I would like to congratulate Canary Wharf Group in making Jubilee Park worthy of a Green Flag Award.”
“To meet the requirements demanded by the scheme is testament to the hard work of the staff who do so much to ensure that Jubilee Park has high standards of horticulture, safety and environmental management and is a place that supports people to live healthy lives.”
Paul Griffiths, Landscape Manager at Canary Wharf Group said: “Congratulations to the whole Landscaping and Estate Management team for their hard work this year. We aim to make our public spaces as beautiful and accessible for our visitors as possible, so raising the Green Flag marks a job well done for us all.”
The Green Flag Award scheme, managed by environmental charity Keep Britain Tidy under licence from the Department for Levelling Up, Housing and Communities, recognises and rewards well-managed parks and green spaces, setting the benchmark standard for the management of green spaces across the United Kingdom and around the world.
In celebration of this year’s announcement, Green Flag Award is asking buildings and monuments around the UK to #GoGreenForParks today to show appreciation for the spaces that mean so much to people.
