Organised by the Fields in Trust, the park is one of 46 parks across the North West region to be nominated for the honour. You can vote for Stanley Park by going to http://www.fieldsintrust.org/bestpark/northwest and have up until Friday 3rd November. The winner of UK's Best Park 2017 will be announced at the Fields in Trust Awards at Lord's Cricket Ground on Wednesday 29th November.

Through his Cleaner Greener Blackpool initiative, Gordon has been promoting the town’s green spaces and parks. He said: “Stanley Park is an absolute haven of interest and tranquillity at the heart of Blackpool.

“I have been proud in my time as your MP to have worked with the council’s Park department and the Friends of Stanley Park group led by Elaine Smith and other volunteer groups which makes it the haven of enjoyment and solace enjoyed by both visitors and residents today. Promoting and championing local parks and green spaces is something I and others continue to do as part of my Cleaner, Greener Blackpool’ initiative.”

Shaun Gallagher, who runs the park’s Art Deco Café added: “From the numbers of visitors we have come to Blackpool, they are amazed at the number of facilities we have to offer at Stanley Park. There’s very few places that can compare to it.

The top park in each region will be shortlisted before the winner is announced at the Fields in Trust Awards Ceremony at Lord's Cricket Ground on 29th November. Visit www.fieldsintrust.org/bestpark to find out more and cast your vote
