Help us find the world's favourite Green Flag Award parks by voting for yours in the People’s Choice Awards 2020.
This year, more than ever, we have all come to understand just how important it is to have a great park or green space on our doorstep.
They have been a place to escape to, to meet friends in, to exercise in or simply to have a quiet moment in.
Thanks to the tireless work of parks staff and volunteers around the world, this year a record-breaking 2,228 parks and green spaces have been given a Green Flag Award so far - the international quality mark for parks and green spaces.
Now, to celebrate our fantastic parks, the public are being asked to vote for their favourite award-winning parks.
Councillor Mandy Owen, executive member for the environment, said: “A few weeks ago four of our green spaces were awarded Green Flag status, and we were very proud.
“This competition gives our Green Flag sites the opportunity to be recognised as one of the world’s favourites. Therefore, we would like to encourage residents to get voting for our Torfaen sites.”
You can find details of all the Green Flag Award winners at www.greenflagaward.org/award-winners/
To vote for your favourite, simply find it on the Award winners’ map, open the park's profile page and click the vote button.
