The experts at Keep Britain Tidy have had their say and in July and both Marine Cove Gardens and Apex Park Leisure and Wildlife Park and Marine Cove Gardens were awarded a prestigious Green Flag Award. 07/09/18
Now, Keep Britain Tidy's 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 opens 1 September and closes 30 September, with the top 10 sites being announced on 16 October.
Paul Todd, Green Flag Award Manager said: This year 1883 parks and green spaces met the tough standards demanded by our Green Flag Award Judges but we want to know which parks the UK public love the most.
