In January 2018, the Mayor awarded £1.1 million to 54 community projects to help them improve and create green spaces across the capital. The majority of these projects ran from January 2018 until February 2019.
They include improving parks, designing new community gardens, greening school playgrounds and restoring waterways. Across all projects, 12 hectares of green space will be created or improved, and almost 20,000 metres of waterway enhanced. To date over 5,000 Londoners, including more than 2,000 children, have been directly involved.
