Borough Beauty Spots up for People’s Choice Award

Fresh from notching up an impressive 15 Green Flag Awards, heritage and beauty spots across the Antrim and Newtownabbey Borough are now vying for your vote in the People’s Choice Award.

The prestigious Award Scheme is asking the nation to have its say and decide which local parks and green spaces should receive the People’s Choice Award for being the UK’s favourites.
Whether you enjoy visiting a park or green space to play football, walk the dog, exercise or simply get away from the hustle and bustle, if you think your favourite deserves to be in the top 10 People’s Choice then cast your vote.
All you have to do is go to www.greenflagaward.org find your park on the winners map and click the voting button. Once you’ve registered your vote, why not encourage others to get involved too through social media using the hashtag #PeoplesChoice
Voting closes on 30 September, with the top 10 sites being announced on 16 October.
The local locations to choose from are:
  • Antrim Castle Gardens
  • Antrim/Belmont Cemetery
  • Ballynure OId Graveyard
  • Jordanstown Loughshore Park, Hazelbank Park and Gideons Green
  • Kilbride Cemetery
  • Lilian Bland Park
