Warley Woods makes the top 10 of UK parks in the People’s Choice Awards for sixth time

Sandwell Council has announced that the community-run Warley Woods,  has been voted by the public as one of the UK’s top 10 parks, for the sixth year in a row. Each year Keep Britain Tidy – which manages the Green Flag Award® – invites the public to vote in The People’s Choice for their favourite park from more than 1,800 sites.

The People’s Choice UK Top 10 was announced on 24 November at a special virtual award ceremony in celebration of the 25th anniversary of the Green Flag Award®.

All of the parks meet the high standards demanded by the scheme, which recognises and rewards well-managed parks and green spaces, setting the benchmark standard for the management of recreational outdoor spaces across the UK and around the world.

After the counting of the votes, Warley Woods is once again in the top ten. This makes it the sixth year in a row – each year since the new top ten format was adopted by Keep Britain Tidy.

The 100-acre community park in Smethwick – which is managed through a Community Trust – features a mix of open meadow and nine-hole golf course, and has some of the region’s most beautiful woodland, offering nature walks, trails and free parking.

Warley Woods is one of Sandwell’s 14 Green Flag Award® parks and green spaces. Read about the parkes and green spaces at www.sandwell.gov.uk/greenflag
