Judges of the Green Flag Awards have visited Cutwood Park in Rishton.
The park, which is one of the youngest in the borough, has been entered into the prestigious annual awards by residents and people can now vote for their favourite park.
Judges visited the park on May 15 and spent time inspecting the facilities, state of the grounds and wildlife to come to their decision, which will be published in June.
Two school parties from Rishton Parish Church pre-school, which is based at St Peter and St Paul’s Church and works with The Copperhouse for their Forest School sessions, were at the park during the judges’ visit to show how well the park is used.
Cabinet member for parks and Rishton ward councillor Ken Moss said: “You only need to take the briefest stroll through the wood to see a wide variety of flowers and wildlife.
“Community groups have worked on areas to provide new nesting boxes for birds and squirrels and there are also fantastic views across the reservoir.
“There are always improvements we can make but on the whole the council maintain Cutwood to a good standard for all Rishton residents to enjoy.
The park has won the Green Flag Award for the last several years and is one of seven parks in Hyndburn to do so.
