Olympic Park has been given an international award honouring the best quality parks.
The Green Flag scheme, which highlights well-managed parks and green spaces, has now recognised Olympic Park for seven years running.
Mark Camley, executive director of park operations and venues at Queen Elizabeth Olympic Park, said he was “incredibly proud”.
“In the last few months the park has proved itself as a lifeline for many east Londoners, with the beautiful parklands providing safe, open space for everyone in the local area,” he told the Gazette.
“Retaining the award for the seventh consecutive year is an honour, and is a testament to the hard-working staff and volunteers who have kept the park open during such difficult times, so thank you to everyone who played a part in this.”
