“We know that parks matter to people and that those tasked with looking after them have faced and are facing some significant challenges with shrinking resources.

The number of people that took the time to vote for their favourite park is testament to how much they are valued and we would like to congratulate all the winners.” - Paul Todd, Keep Britain Tidy’s Green Flag Award manager
