Strathaven regularly features in the top ten – and now the public are being encouraged once again to vote for Scotland’s top park.
Environmental charity Keep Scotland Beautiful are encouraging members of the public to vote for their favourite Scottish Green Flag Award park.
Over 70 parks from across Scotland received a Green Flag Award in 2017, and polling is now open to find the nation’s favourite green space.
Derek Robertson, chief executive of Keep Scotland Beautiful, commented: “Scotland is home to some of the most beautiful outdoor spaces in the UK. We had a record breaking number of parks receive the Green Flag Award in 2017 – which is testament to the determination of park managers, local authorities and volunteers.
“The People’s Choice prize is a good opportunity to celebrate their achievements. If you value the hard work that goes into maintaining your local green spaces, I would encourage you to show your support and vote.”
Since the competition started in 2013, Strathaven Park has featured in the top ten three times. To cast your vote up until Saturday, September 30, visit www. keepscotlandbeautiful.org.
