Windmill Gardens has been recognised by the Green Flag Award Scheme as one of the very best in the world, as it retains its Green Flag Community Award for the fourth consecutive year. It joins 16 other green spaces awarded recognition in Lambeth.

The historic heritage site is among a record-breaking 1,970 UK parks and green spaces and 131 in thirteen other countries around the world that will today receive a prestigious Green Flag Community Award – the mark of a quality park or green space.

This international award, now into its third decade, is a sign to the public that the space boasts the highest possible environmental standards, is beautifully maintained and has excellent visitor facilities.

Jean Kerrigan, Chair of the Friends of Windmill Gardens, said: “We are absolutely delighted to receive a Green Flag Community Award. We know how much quality green spaces matter to residents and visitors, and this award celebrates the dedication that goes into maintaining Windmill Gardens to such a high standard.”

International Green Flag Award scheme manager Paul Todd said: “It’s fantastic that we have more Green Flag Awards in the UK than ever before, joined this year by 131 International winners.”

“Each flag honours the thousands of staff and volunteers who work tirelessly to maintain the high standards demanded by the Green Flag Award. We congratulate each and every winner on their fantastic achievement.”
