We all have a favourite park and now’s the time to vote for yours

Help us find the nation’s favourite parks by voting for yours in the People’s Choice Awards.

The experts have had their say and in July 1,973 parks and green spaces in the UK were given a prestigious Green Flag Award including Slieve Gullion Forest Park.

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. 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 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.

Jamie Miller, Certifications Coordinator, Keep Northern Ireland Beautiful said: “This year 1,973 parks and green spaces met the tough standards demanded by our Green Flag Award Judges but we want to know which parks the 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.”

Jamie went on to say: “In July we celebrated 76 local public parks and Green Spaces who achieved the Green Flag Award. We know that the public love and use our fantastic parks and green spaces and we think Northern Ireland deserves at least one site in the top 10 of the People’s Choice Awards! To cast your vote please visit find your park on the winners map and click the voting button.”
