9:00am Sunday 8th September 2013 in News
Haden Hill Park and Barnford Park plus the Barnford and Farm Road Allotments, Oldbury, have the chance to be named Park of the Year in the online vote run by environmental charity Keep Britain.
Councillor Maria Crompton, Sandwell Council's cabinet member for highways and environment, said: "Nowhere in the West Midlands has more open spaces with Green Flags than Sandwell.
"We are very proud to be leading the way - and it's thanks to all the Friends groups, volunteers, council staff, Serco and others that Sandwell has achieved 12 Green Flags, with work going on to improve other green spaces too.
"The People's Choice Awards is a great opportunity for Sandwell to gain further recognition at a national level - and I encourage people to take pride in where they live and vote for their favourite green space."
To vote visit www.sandwell.gov.uk/greenflag before midday on October 1.
