Enfield Council is celebrating after learning that two new parks, Arnos and Broomfield, have been awarded Green Flags for the first time ever, joining the eight other parks in the borough which have always held the honour.

The Green Flag Award scheme recognises and rewards the best open spaces in the country. Enfield is one of the greenest boroughs in London and the Council manages over 900 hectares of parkland and open spaces for the public to enjoy and explore.

Bush Hill Park, Trent Country Park, Jubilee Park, Oakwood Park, Town Park, Forty Hall Park, Grovelands Park and Pymmes Park are the parks in Enfield which retained their awards once again. They are now joined by Arnos and Broomfield.

Enfield Council's Cabinet Member for Environment, Cllr Daniel Anderson, said "This is absolutely fantastic news. For the first time we have ten of our beautiful parks holding Green Flag Awards.

"Parks staff, along with the Friends Groups, continue to do a marvellous job in providing first rate facilities in our parks and open spaces across the borough for everyone to enjoy.

"Now summer's here, I would urge residents to go out and see what is happening in our parks. Guided walks, outdoor gyms, new play equipment, cycle paths and free entertainment, all there to be used and enjoyed."
