Does Runcorn Hill Park float your (model) boat? Do you love a luxury latte at Victoria Park? Vote for your favourite park in Halton and get it a prestigious national award.
The experts have had their say and in July three of our parks received the prestigious Green Flag Award. They are Hale Park, Runcorn Hill Park and Victoria 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 www.greenflagaward.org 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.

Halton Borough Council’s Executive Board Member for the Physical Environment, Cllr Ron Hignett, said: “We have some amazing parks and open spaces in Widnes and Runcorn. Let’s celebrate them!”
Voting opens 1 September and closes 30 September, with the top 10 sites being announced on 16 October.
Paul Todd, Green Flag Award, Manager said: This year 1,883 parks and green spaces met the tough standards demanded by our Green Flag Award Judges but we want to know which parks the UK 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.”
