This year a record breaking 1,582 parks and green spaces were awarded the prestigious, international Green Flag Award. You can find your nearest winning parks at greenflagaward.org. 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 go to www.greenflagaward.org, select your country or region on the interactive map, find your favourite park or green space and click the ‘vote for this site’ button.
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.”
