Yarrow said: "So much hard work goes into keeping West Ham a place that can be used and enjoyed by all Londoners. The park has an enormous impact on both the local community and the capital at large – and is hugely valued by everyone who comes here.
"An astonishing two hundred thousand bedding plants from the West Ham Park Nursery keep every single park in the Square Mile stocked with floral finesse – as well as Greenwich, Richmond and Bushey Parks. It is an amazing resource for London."
Last year West Ham Park won ‘Gold’ in the London in Bloom large park category, Green Flag and a Green Heritage Award. It is the largest park in the London Borough of Newham, at 77 acres, and sees more than one million visitors annually.
The City of London Corporation runs 11,000 acres of green space across London, including Epping Forest and Hampstead Heath.
