The next time you hear some ignoramus slating London for its lack of greenery, tell ’em this: London is home to the best park in the UK!
Wondering where to head to for this award-winning spot of green? It’s the one and only, lake and Chinese pagoda boasting, Victoria Park.
After four weeks of voting, Vicky Park won the People’s Choice Award with a stonking 13,000 of the 35,000 votes. Pretty great achievement considering there were 1482 Green Flag Award winning sites battling it out for the number one spot.
To celebrate, the council is organising a fun day on October 29 to spread the news. There will be family entertainment from 11am-3pm and the unveiling of a plaque to mark the Award.
