Hampstead Heath and Highgate Wood have won prestigious green flag status for the 18th year in a row – as well as picking up the prestigious Green Heritage Site award.

The Green Flag Awards recognise the best green sites in the UK and are awarded by a panel of expert judges for top facilities and excellent use of space, while Green Heritage Site status recognises the care and conservation of important historic sites.

The City of London Corporation manages both green spaces and Jeremy Simons, chairman of the City’s Hampstead Heath Management Committee, said: “It is testament to the hard work and dedication of the staff and volunteers who work throughout the year to maintain and protect these wonderful sites.”

Also on this year’s list of winners was Regent’s Park, including Primrose Hill, which was awarded green flag and Green Heritage Site status.

In Haringey 18 parks won the green flag. Camden and Barnet Councils do not enter the awards.
