Bankside Open Spaces Trust has received an 'Outstanding' award as part of the Royal Horticultural Society's It's Your Neighbourhood scheme.
The RHS It's Your Neighbourhood scheme has five levels of achievement: Establishing, Improving, Developing, Thriving and Outstanding.
Community participation accounts for 40 per cent of the final score whilst environmental responsibility and gardening achievement are each worth 30 per cent.
"This is a fitting accolade to the hard work of many local people in planting and improving our neighbourhood," says Bankside Open Spaces Trust director Helen Firminger.
