Dear All,

I am sure that you have heard that Albert Road Recreation Ground has lost its Green Flag status following a mystery shopper report by Keep Britain Tidy. The Park has now been downgraded to Red, which means that there are sginficant concerns about the park. A number of other parks across Haringey have also recieved red notices. However, the reports have still not been released by the Council.

Your local Councillors are working with Friends of Albert Road Recreation Ground to get the Council to publish the report - but so far the Council have refused to publish the report following a request by Cllr Bob Hare (Highgate Ward and Parks Spokesperson), and also rejected a Freedom of Information request (FOI request). So that we are able to see what the recommendations and concerns of Keep Britain Tidy are, so that we can work together with the Council to ensure that Albert Road Rec can once again be a Green Flag park.

Once we recieve copies of the report we will be sharing with all interested.

Best wishes

  • Thanks for posting, Nick. I heard about this a few days ago and it is worrying.

    • Indeed! That’s why we really want to get hold of the report and start pressing for action to that our park can be a Green Flag Park again! 

      Once we hear, I’ll do an update and share the report.


      p.s. No update yet on 20 Crescent Road or Crescent Mews.
