Nominations for national charity Fields in Trust's search to find the UK's Best Park, as voted by the public, will close today.
The campaign, part of the organisation's annual awards, is open to all local green spaces across the UK.
A simple online nomination form allows anyone to suggest their favourite local green space. This will be followed by a public vote with the winner announced at the Fields in Trust Awards ceremony on Wednesday November 29.
Nominations close on October 13. Fields in Trust Chief Executive, Helen Griffiths, appointed as a member of the government's new Parks Action Group, said: "Parks and open spaces are arguably the most universal of all public services.
"They are used by the entire community from pre-school children through to retired adults - our nation's parks and green spaces are places to enjoy life experiences, whether that's reaching a personal sporting milestone, teaching grandchildren to cycle, engaging with nature, having a first kiss or simply walking a much loved dog.
"We want to ensure that we value parks and green spaces and take account of the vital contribution they make to local communities."
