The results are in: and there’s no prize from Boris for Islington.
Of the ten parks getting extra money from Boris, two are in north London: Dollis Valley Green Walk in Barnet, and Lordship Park in Haringey. It’s a real shame that the Mayor of London has no extra money for Barnard Park, Elthorne Park or Bunhill Fields.
But no need to despair. The good news for Barnard and Elthorne is that Islington Council has committed an extra £6.6M for the borough’s parks: more than Boris was offering London-wide.
