Vote for Botanic Gardens

We are delighted that Botanic Gardens, Hesketh Park and Lord Street Gardens will be proudly flying their Green Flag Awards again for 2013.

The Flags are awarded by the Keep Britain Tidy Campaign as the mark of quality for green spaces.

Residents now have the chance to help make one of our Southport Parks the nation’s favourite by taking part in the People Choice Award – an online vote that will allow people to chose which of  1,448 Green Flag Sites should be named park of the year.

Cllr Nigel Ashton said "It is great news that Botanic Gardens has once again been recognised as one of the best green spaces in the country. The award also recognises the tremendous work of the volunteers who have worked so hard alongside the professional garden staff."

"There is now a great opportunity to vote to make Botanic Gardens the nation's favourite park"
