Wanstead’s park mystery

Five Redbridge parks have been awarded “green flag” status for, among other things, their cleanliness, but also including their security and quality of facilities.

They are: Valentines Park, Ilford, South Park, Ilford, Goodmayes Park, Goodmayes, Elmhurst Gardens, South Woodford and Ilford War Memorial Gardens, Ilford.

They are not: Christ Church Green, Wanstead. Opinions will vary on the specific reasons.
