The council and Big Lottery funded Thyme Out scheme offers free horticultural training and qualification opportunities to up to 40 people with learning difficulties.
Participants were offered guidance in basic work skills, literacy and numeracy. They also devoloped skills in interacting with the public by providing demonstrations, tours and open days.
Two groups of 20 were trained for 18 months each over the three year scheme and their work was recognised last month with the award of the park’s first ever green flag.
Bromley council executive councillor for renewal and recreation Julian Benington said: "This Green Flag award is a reflection of the excellent work undertaken by the Thyme Out team, council staff and the local community on a daily basis to maintain and improve our borough. Parks are a crucial part of the urban area and in Bromley we are blessed with all of our town centres being next to green space. We are extremely grateful for the invaluable help we’ve received from Friends Groups and would like to encourage people to get involved."
The urban park covers 14 acres and is made up of open space, woodland, historic sites and conservation areas.
