Potters Fields Park is flying the flag as one of the UK’s very best green spaces.

Potters Fields Park in Southwark has been recognised by the Green Flag Award Scheme as one of the very best in the world.

Potters Fields have won a Green Flag Award for 9th year in a row. For the first 6 years Potters Fields won a Green Pennant and in the last 3 years a Green Flag.

Jon Tighe, Park and Events Manager said: “We are absolutely delighted to receive a Green Flag Award for the 3rd year running.We know how much quality green spaces matter to residents and visitors, and this award celebrates the dedication that goes into maintaining Potters Fields park to such a high standard.

We would not have received this award without the continued excellent work of our gardeners from Gavin Jones Ltd. Their efforts go above and beyond the call of duty and deliver the beautiful park you see today”.

International Green Flag Award scheme manager Paul Todd said: “We are delighted to be celebrating another record-breaking year for the Green Flag Award scheme.
Each flag is a celebration of the thousands of staff and volunteers who work tirelessly to maintain the high standards demanded by the Green Flag Award. The success of the scheme, especially in these challenging times, demonstrates just how much parks matter to people.”
