This year a record breaking 1,582 UK parks and green
spaces were awarded the prestigious, international Green Flag
Award. Because we all know how much parks mean to
people, the annual People's Choice award is now open - giving the
public a chance to vote for their favourite.
The vote opens today and closes at noon on 30
September. All Green Flag Award winning sites are entered
into the annual People's Choice Award vote. The winner of the
People's Choice will be announced in October. To vote simply,
select your country or region on
the interactive map
, find your favourite park or green space
and click the 'vote for this site' button. Please note
multiple votes will not be counted.
Last year saw over 35 thousand votes from the public, with
Victoria Park in London's Tower Hamlets receiving thousands of
votes to be crowned as the People's Choice.
Paul Todd, Green Flag Award manager said, "We all
have a favourite park, whether it's our local green space or a
special park we'll travel miles to visit. Following another record
breaking year for the Green Flag Award, we are urging everyone to
vote for their own favourite park, so we can crown one of these
1,582 special parks as the People's Choice 2015."
