Visitors to Rouken Glen are being asked to get behind the park and vote for it as the UK's favourite park for the second year in a row.

Over 200 local greenspaces across the UK have been nominated to win the top award, which Rouken Glen Park scooped in 2016, and this year's winner will be announced by national greenspace enthusiasts Fields in Trust next month.

A number of major improvements have taken place in the park over the last couple of years and a continuous range of events with themes such as history, wildlife, conservation and education are held throughout the year.

Rouken Glen has a spectacular natural environment and holds a very special place in the hearts of residents and the thousands of visitors who come to the park each year. Rouken Glen has been loved by all for more than 100 years and with it already being crowned UK's Best Park in 2016, will continue to attract thousands of visitors to East Renfrewshire in the years to come. I hope that you will take a minute to vote and again prove that East Renfrewshire really is home to the UK's Best Park.
Convener for Environment - Councillor Alan Lafferty

Alongside its current UK's Best Park 2016 title, Rouken Glen also holds seven consecutive Green Flag awards, a sign to visitors that the park is well-maintained and well-managed, with excellent facilities.

To vote, visit the Fields in Trust website and find Rouken Glen Park. Voting will close at 5pm on Friday 3 November and the park with the most votes in each country of the UK will be shortlisted and invited to a prestigious awards event on Fields in Trust Awards on Wednesday 29th November.

Fields in Trust is a national charity whose mission is to ensure that everyone, young or old, able-bodied or disabled and wherever they live, should have access to free, local outdoor space for sport, play and recreation.
