Hillingdon now has 60 green spaces with Green Flag awards after four areas in Ruislip were added to the list.
The four Ruislip spaces: Fairway Recreation Ground, Stonefield Park, Field End Recreation Ground (pictured) and Highgrove Woods, were presented awards for the first time last month, along with Hale Field Park in Uxbridge.
The annual Green Flag Award scheme, run by Keep Britain Tidy, recognises well-managed green spaces and is considered the benchmark national standard for public parks.
Councillor Jonathan Bianco, Hillingdon Council’s cabinet member for finance, property and business services, said: “This is fantastic news and we are absolutely thrilled. Green Flags are the highest honour awarded to parks or green spaces and we are delighted to have received a further five flags this year.
“We prioritise investment in our parks, and this year’s success reflects our ongoing commitment.
“Community groups, volunteers and council staff work incredibly hard to keep the borough looking so welcoming and attractive. These awards are a fitting recognition of their contributions.”
