Town Park gets public vote

Telford Town Park has been named as one of the top 10 favourite parks to visit by the Green Flag Award through the 2018 People’s Choice vote. More than 65,000 votes were cast as the nation picked the best of British parks. With more than 1,800 sites to choose from, all of which met the high standards demanded by the Green Flag Award, the popular attraction had to beat off stiff opposition.

Green Flag’s Paul Todd says, “We know parks matter to people and that those tasked with looking after them have faced and are facing some significant challenges with shrinking resources. The number of people who took the time to vote for their favourite park is testament to how much they are valued and we’d like to congratulate all the winners.”

Telford Town Park now boasts a high ropes course as well as a 10m climbing wall and quick jump descender, with Disc Golf – a cross between golf and frisbee – added this summer. Recent improvements have included new pathways to improve access, a refurbished bandstand, and a variety of new plants.
