In July, Lillington and Longmoore , Lisson Green and Churchill Gardens’ green spaces were recognised as some of the nation’s best after they each received an internationally acclaimed green flag award.
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.
Michael Stewart, Estate Services Team Manager at CityWest Homes said: “We are really pleased to have retained the Green Flag status across our estates as we put such effort into maintaining these spaces for our residents.
“To win the people’s choice award would be real testament to how much these spaces are enjoyed by everyone who use them.”
Voting has now opened 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.
“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”
