Britain`s Best Park is in Colchester

Colchester, the oldest town in Britain, has lots of claims to fame, and I have just become aware of another one.

In the annual Britain`s Best Park competition, voted for by park staff and park users, Castle Park in Colchester is the winner for 2009.

The regional winners included Kelvingrove Park, Glasgow; Bute Park, Cardiff; The Walks, Kings Lynn; and Garth Park, Bicester.

I would certainly agree that Castle Park is an excellent park, and well worthy of awards. My own favourites, however, are Abbey Park in Leicester and Priory Park in Prittlewell. How about you?
