Harrow is famous for being one of the greenest London boroughs, and its reputation was sealed even further last week when five parks in the borough were given the sought-after Green Flag award. This award recognises the UK’s best parks and green spaces, and notifies parks which offer high quality facilities and are well maintained.
Over 700 experts judged the parks on factors including cleanliness, community participation, sustainability and horticultural standards, and found that Harrow’s parks performed highly in all criteria. This is all down to the efforts of the park staff and local community, who work hard to keep the parks in top condition. The five parks which received awards were Harrow Recreation Ground, Kenton Recreation Ground, Canons Park, Pinner Memorial Park, and Roxeth Recreation Ground.
Parks and green spaces are of course a very appealing feature for prospective tenants and property buyers, as green areas are at a premium in the capital. Young professionals and families are likely to be attracted by the prospect of living in a borough with award-winning parks where they can enjoy relaxing, playing and taking part in leisure activities, which means there are many opportunities for landlords and buyers in Harrow to make a healthy profit. The borough also has the advantage of being close to Central London and providing easy travel for commuters.
