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

This year an army of experts awarded a record breaking 1,797 Green Flag Awards to the UK’s very best parks and green spaces and four of these have been awarded across Tendring at Dovercourt’s Cliff Park, Frinton’s Crescent Gardens, Weeley Crematorium and Clacton Seafront Gardens.

The scheme is now asking the public to vote for their favourites.

You can view the award-winning parks at To vote for your favourite, simply find it on the map and click the vote button. Once you’ve voted, why not encourage others to get involved too.

Voting opens 1 September and closes 30 September, with the top 10 winning sites being announced on 11 October.

Cllr Michael Talbot, Tendring District Council’s Cabinet Member for Environment, said he hoped people would take the time to vote for their favourite open space.

“Our District’s parks and gardens are truly magnificent and my heartfelt thanks go to all the people involved in keeping them that way for the benefit of all,” he said.

Paul Todd, International Green Flag Award manager said, “Following the huge success of #LoveParks Week, the People’s Choice Award is another chance to show how much your favourite park means to you. Make your voice heard and vote now.”

Last year saw tens of thousands of people voting for their favourite park, with winners coming from all across the UK, from London to Lanarkshire.
