Do you have a favourite local park? Clissold? Springfield Park? Butterfield Green? An annual competition - Postcard from the Park - has just been launched.
Local residents are encouraged to celebrate our local green spaces, by taking pictures of what they love most about their local park. All winners will have their photos professionally exhibited and made into postcards. The deadline is 3rd August.
The competition is organised by the Heritage Lottery Fund and Big Lottery Fund - who have supported some of Hackney's major park redevelopment projects.
Improving green spaces are one of our local priorities - Hackney has seven parks with Green Flag status, and in Stoke Newington, we are working hard to solve some of the issues around Kynaston Gardens and also supporting Groundwork's exciting plans for the West Hackney Recreation Ground so that more residents will benefit from quality parks to spend time in and enjoy.
