In October 2020, Hurlingham Park was successfully re-awarded a Green Flag, the benchmark national standard across the UK for public parks and green spaces. This park is maintained with the support of London Community Rehabilitation Company’s community payback, organised by our partner organisation idverde.
The work we have helped carry out in Hurlingham Park includes painting railings and gates, as well as helping to maintain the rose garden. We have been working with idverde in the park for several months, operating two days a week as COVID-19 tiers allow, and have developed a good working relationship with park employees.
Looking ahead, we are looking at moving onto more tasks to maintain and uplift the overall park, with goals of additional painting work, ground clearance work and restoring a children’s play area that requires some care and attention.
