We all have a favourite park and now’s the time to vote for yours

The experts have had their say and in July 1883 parks and green spaces in the UK were given a prestigious Green Flag Award.

[aoa id=”1″]

Now, the Award Scheme is asking the nation to have its say and decide which parks and green spaces should receive the People’s Choice Award for being the UK’s favourites.

Whether you enjoy visiting a park or green space to play football, walk the dog, exercise or simply get away from the hustle and bustle, if you think your favourite deserves to be in the top 10 People’s Choice then cast your vote.


All you have to do is go to www.greenflagaward.org find your park on the winners map and click the voting button. Once you’ve registered your vote, why not encourage others to get involved too through social media using the hashtag #PeoplesChoice.

Voting closes 30 September, with the top 10 sites being announced on 16 October.
