Fields In Trust ~ The UK's Best Park

Saturday 15th October 2016: 

Parks and playing fields are the heart and soul of communities. Is your local park the best in the UK? Nominate it as the UK's Best Park! 

Last year Telford Town Park in Shropshire was named as UK's Best Park after a public vote which saw over 122 parks across the UK nominated and over 10,000 votes cast. This year it could be your favourite local green space which is named as the nation's favourite.

It might be that your local park is great for a Sunday afternoon stroll, or that your local playground is a hive of activity for children. We want to know what makes the space so special and why it deserves the recognition of being named UK's Best Park.
