Maintaining parks

The council maintains a wide variety of landscapes in parks and other green spaces. Maintenance includes keeping the grass cut, pruning shrubs, roses and hedges and maintaining the flower beds.

The parks and open space service also carry out cleaning operations to empty bins and remove litter. Sadly, a few people drop litter in parks, spoiling the enjoyment of these spaces for everyone. Dropping litter is an offence that can incur an £80 fine.

Community park rangers regularly inspect Mile End Park and Victoria Park and Streetcare Officers regularly inspect all other parks to ensure that good standards are being maintained and to spot and deal with any damage or graffiti.

We are keen to continue improving our landscaping services, so if you feel any areas could be enhanced or if you have any comments please contact us.
