Rotherham park in UK’s top ten

CLIFTON Park has been voted one of the UK’s ten favourite parks.

Thousands of people voted in a poll run by Keep Britain Tidy to find the best loved among 1,700 Green Flag Award-winning parks.

After a month of voting, the nation has had its say and the ten favourite parks in Britain were revealed this week, with Clifton Park bagging a top ten spot.

Elaine Humphries, chairwoman of the Friends of Clifton Park, said the group was “absolutely delighted” with the results.

“This really reflects the love that generations of local people have for Clifton Park and Museum and all the hard work and dedication of the staff and volunteers who make the park a beautiful place to be,” she said.

In total, more than 30,000 people voted and this year's winners are dotted across the country from north to south, with Elsecar Park in Barnsley also making the top ten.
