It's time to vote for your favourite Green Flag Award site
The experts have had their say and in July 1883 parks and green spaces in the UK were given a prestigious Green Flag Award or Green Flag Community Award. An additional 105 sites hold the Award around the world.
Now, the Award Scheme is asking you to have your say and decide which of this year's winners should receive the People’s Choice Awards for being the UK’s and the world'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 find your favourite on the winners map open the park description and click the voting button on the right. When you have voted why not encourage others to get involved too through social media using #PeoplesChoice.
Voting takes place from 1 - 30 September, with the top 10 sites in the UK and top ten internationally being announced on 16 October.
Paul Todd, Green Flag Award Manager said:
"The People’s Choice Award is a chance to show how much your favourite park means to you. If it’s worth shouting about, make your voice heard and vote now.”
Paul Rabbitts Head of Parks, Open Spaces & Projects, whose Cassiobury Park was among the top 10 winners last year said:
“Cassiobury Park is often referred to as the jewel in our crown here in Watford. We are immensely proud of it and we truly believe it is one of the finest parks in the country and are delighted it was voted as one of the top ten parks last year. We will certainly be hoping it is as popular again this year”
Please note multiple votes will not be counted.
