Six Lambeth parks win Green Flags
Two local parks popular with residents of SE11 have joined four others in Lambeth to be awarded the prestigious Green Flag award.
Vauxhall Park (South Lambeth Road) retained its Green Flag, and Archbishops Park (Lambeth Road) won a Green Flag for the first time.
The Green Flag Award recognises parks which manage to meet exacting national standards of safety, cleanliness and attractiveness.
Recognition for North Lambeth's parks is unlikely to end here. The Friends of Kennington Park are hopeful that they will achieve Green Flag status next year. And Vauxhall Spring Gardens has dramatic improvement works planned over the coming years, which should make it a strong contender for the award.
