Good Parks for London 2018

On Wednesday 28 November, Parks for London published the Good Parks for London Report 2018: Improving London’s parks for all.

The Good Parks for London Report 2018 considers the approach that London Boroughs are taking towards parks and green spaces, evaluating them against ten criteria: public satisfaction, awards for quality, health and wellbeing, sustainability, events, supporting nature, skills development, community partnerships, collaboration and strategic planning.

London Borough of Lewisham has topped the chart for the second year in a row, demonstrating the fantastic work that they are doing to promote and protect parks and green spaces across their Borough.

Criteria used to assess London Boroughs’ parks and green spaces services:
1. Public satisfaction with parks
2. Awards for quality (Green Flags and London in Bloom)
3. Collaboration
4. Events: both policy and range and number of events
5. Health, fitness and well-being
6. Supporting nature
7. Community partnerships
8. Skills development
9. Sustainability
10. Strategic planning

For reference the first report of 2017 can be found here.
