Parks and Green Spaces
Camden’s Green Space section manage 76 parks and over 300 green spaces on housing estates, sheltered housing sites, verges, churchyards and cemeteries, corporate properties, education sites, nature reserves, and allotments. Within these sites we are responsible for:
- keeping our sites safe, welcoming and clean (please see our park byelaws)
- parks infrastructure (for example maintaining boundary and internal fences and gates, pathways, benches, bins etc)
- soft landscaping
- sports facilities (Multi Use Games Areas (MUGA’s), tennis and netball courts, a skate park, and outdoor gyms)
- statues and memorials
To maintain high quality parks and green spaces we work closely with our grounds maintenance contractor Idverde, Tree Contractor City Suburban Tree Surgeons Ltd, and recycling and waste management contractor Veolia UK.
We also work with partners to provide opportunities for people to get involved with food growing, allotments, nature conservation volunteering, and Friends of Community Groups. As well as the ongoing development of our sites through our Green Space Investment Programme.
