Public Parks & Gardens and our Green Spaces are among the most important places for all in the region. These categories recognise the diversity of our large, small, intimate places that can be enjoyed on many levels. Just sitting and enjoying the scenery, for sport, children’s play, for gardening and horticulture, for walking the dog, for sustaining our wildlife, Parks and open spaces provide it with all.
The South & South East is very fortunate to have many outstanding Gardens, Landscapes and Coastal Landscapes and we invite them to enter. Our various Parks categories help us to celebrate these wonderful places and spread the word across the region and beyond that they are MUST visit places.
We have several categories from small to large, from Conservation Areas to Country Parks, so something for everyone. So why not encourage your local Park and get your local authority to enter the competition. We are also fortunate to be well served across the region with outstanding private or publicly owned gardens and estates such Hever Castle, Osbourne, Sir Harold Hillier and many more these all high achieving and award-winning gardens. There are many more equally as good and we would love to hear from you and recognise what you do.
