Alexandra Park hopes to be voted top five in Keep Britain Tidy’s People’s Choice Award
Alexandra Park has called on members of the public to vote for it as one of the top five green spaces in the country.
The park, which celebrated its 150th anniversary this year, hopes to be voted one of the best in the UK in Keep Britain Tidy’s People’s Choice Award.
Earlier this year, the 196-acre park was given a Green Flag Award for the sixth consecutive year by environmental charity Keep Britain Tidy.
Last year, it was voted as the fourth best green space in the country but it hopes to do better this year.
Duncan Wilson, the chief executive of Alexandra Park and Palace Charitable Trust, said: “We were absolutely delighted to receive another Green Flag Award for Alexandra Park, especially in its 150th anniversary year.
“This award is evidence of all the excellent hard work that has been invested in the park by the dedicated team who work around the clock to make sure it is maintained for the public and conserved for the future.
“Last year’s People’s Choice Award saw Alexandra Park voted by the public as the second favourite green space in Greater London and the fourth favourite across the nation from a list of more than 1,000.
“We are hoping that our visitors will once again register their support and that we do even better this year.”
To vote visit www.greenflagaward.org.uk, select Haringey on the interactive map, find Alexandra Park and select it, then click ‘vote for this site’.
The vote will close at midday on October 1 and the winner of the 2013 People’s Choice will be announced on October 9 at a ceremony in London.
