Margam Country Park was ranked among the best in the country after environmental charity Keep Britain Tidy asked the public to weigh in with their People's Choice vote, which came after the park was once again the recipient of a prestigious Green Flag.

Tens of thousands voted the park into the country's top ten.

“I’d like to thank everyone who voted for Margam Park and I am delighted it has once again been recognised in the Green Flag People’s Choice Awards. The park is such an important landmark both for our local residents and visitors and this award shows just how much people value it."
