Chesterfield MP Toby Perkins is urging local residents to back their favourite local parks as the UK’s Favourite Park in a nationwide public vote organised by green space charity, Fields in Trust.

Both Eastwood Park and Monkey Park in Chesterfield have been nominated.
Toby said “It’s wonderful that two of our local parks have been nominated in the UK wide vote. During the lockdowns, we’ve seen what a difference our parks have made. They have been a sanctuary for so many of us in such a difficult time.

I’m pleased that two parks in my constituency have been celebrated in this way and I urge residents to vote for their favourite”.

Fields in Trust Chief Executive Helen Griffiths said: “Our nation’s parks have been so important during the pandemic, and it is vital that we celebrate them to help ensure they are protected for future generations. Our children and grandchildren deserve to have the same access to green space that we do, this is a significant moment to change the way we think about the contribution local green spaces make to our health, our wellbeing, our environment, and ultimately our futures.”

Eastwood Park and Monkey Park are two of the 364 parks and green spaces in the running to be awarded UK’s Favourite Park 2022. Voting is now open at and will close at noon on Thursday 18th August 2022.

The parks with the most votes in each of England, Scotland, Wales and Northern Ireland will be named National Favourites and the overall winner the UK’s Favourite Park 2022.
