Gunnersbury Triangle has again been recognised as one of the best green spaces in Britain after retaining its Green Flag Award.

The nature reserve is among a record-breaking 1,797 parks and green spaces in Britain that are receiving a prestigious Green Flag Award, the mark of a high-quality 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.

Netty Ribeaux, Gunnersbury Triangle’s Conservation Officer, said: “We are absolutely delighted that Gunnersbury Triangle has again won a Green Flag Award. We know how much high-quality green spaces matter to Londoners, and this award celebrates the dedication that goes into making the Triangle such a wonderful place to visit.”

Four other Trust reserves have won Green Flags. Crane Park Island in Twickenham and Yeading Brook Meadows in Hillingdon borough were again given Green Flags, while Woodberry Wetlands in Hackney won its first-ever award. The Centre for Wildlife Gardening in Peckham won a Green Flag Community Award.

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.”

Gunnersbury Triangle is free to visit at all times. It is hosting a summer open day this Saturday from 1pm-4pm, when there’ll be a series of family-friendly wildlife and nature activities taking place.

Gunnersbury Triangle is a local wet woodland nature reserve that was saved from development in the early 1980s.

Today, birds and small mammals take advantage of the sheltered birch and willow, while walkways and footpaths help visitors explore this wild oasis in Chiswick.
