London in Bloom 2014

We are delighted that Golders Hill Park has been awarded Gold and Category Winner (large park) in the London in Bloom Awards, 2014.

The park and sustainable planting scheme were stunning throughout the summer.

The City of London's Open Spaces as a whole did extremely well at the awards, achieved eight gold awards and one silver gilt award, as well as winning the categories small park, large park, small cemetery and the Borough of the Year Award.

Heath habitats and facilities

Hampstead Heath is one of London’s most popular open spaces, situated just six kilometres from Trafalgar Square. An island of beautiful countryside, the magic of Hampstead Heath lies not only in its rich wildlife and extensive sports and recreational opportunities, but also in its proximity and accessibility to millions of people. There is a zoo, an athletics track, an education centre, extensive children's facilities, three swimming ponds and a Lido.

Biodiversity in the city

Hampstead Heath's mosaic of habitats provides a resource for wildlife just six kilometres from the centre of London. It is of national as well as regional importance. The City of London aims to maintain and extend the Heath's status as one of London's best places for wildlife. Hampstead Heath features a number of priority species identified in the UK Biodiversity Action Plan.


Hampstead Heath provides excellent facilities for organised sport. With a lack of open space in surrounding densely populated boroughs, Hampstead Heath has a crucial role to play in providing sporting opportunities and promoting good health.
