For a third year running Queens Gardens has been awarded a prestigious Green Flag award. This reflects the continuing very high standard of this much valued public park, achieved as a result of the maintenance of this space by the parks contractor idVerde. This has been achieved despite the furloughing of many staff members during the height of the coronavirus lockdown. Seven other public green spaces across the borough also gained awards.
Queens Gardens is an important public green space located between The Glades shopping centre and Kentish Way. It therefore provides a welcome restful oasis from the much busier places adjacent. This is especially true in the current pandemic. You can find out more about this park HERE
The Green Flag Award® scheme recognises and rewards well managed parks and green spaces, setting the benchmark standard for the management of recreational outdoor spaces across the United Kingdom and around the world.
Queens Garden is a popular town centre park which for two years running has been awarded a Green Flag, a national award marking its quality. We are now looking for your comments on this park especially what you most enjoy about it. Your comments will help inform the ongoing management plan for this site.
Queens Garden has been awarded a Green Flag Award for a second year running, as one of the very best in the world. Queens Garden joins several other green spaces awarded recognition in Bromley.
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.
“We are absolutely delighted to receive a Green Flag Award for the second year. We know how much quality green spaces matter to residents and visitors, and this award celebrates the dedication that goes into maintaining Queens Garden to such a high standard. This park has been enjoyed by the public for over a hundred years and we are confident that they will continue to do so in the future.”

We had an inspection visit, last Friday, in response to the application for a Green Flag award. It was a rather cold and damp, in great contrast to the weather just a week before. However the inspection seemed to go well and we await a decision in a couple of months. Besides the two inspectors, representatives of our Friends group as well as idVerde (the parks maintenance contractor) were in attendance. We later met two members of The Glades management team.
