Lancaster City Council is urging people to vote for the district’s best open spaces for a national award.

A record breaking 1,448 parks and green spaces this year received a Green Flag Award.

Among them were Happy Mount Park, Williamson Park, Torrisholme Cemetery, and Morecambe Cemetery (together with Morecambe Parish Church).

People are now urged to vote for their favourite for the People’s Choice Award, an annual online vote that gives the public the power to decide which one of the 1,448 parks or green spaces flying the Green Flag Award should be named the site of the year.

To vote for your favourite award winner, visit, select the north west on the interactive map, find your favourite park or green space and click the ‘vote for this site’ button.

Paul Todd, Keep Britain Tidy’s Green Flag Award scheme manager said: “Our judges have decided on this year’s winners of the coveted Green Flag Award but the public now have the opportunity to decide which park or green space deserves The People’s Choice Award.”

Voting for the People’s Choice Award winner closes at midday on Tuesday October 1.

The Green Flag Award was first launched in 1996 to recognise and reward the best green spaces in the country. It is the national standard for parks and recognises well managed, high quality sites with community involvement.

All Green Flag Award-winning parks and green spaces are entered into the annual poll, which last year saw thousands of people voting for their favourite green space.
