Wivenhoe Park wins national award

Knowledge Gateway businesses enjoy access to an award-winning park on their doorstep and Wivenhoe Park - the home of the University of Essex's Colchester Campus - has picked up another award.

Wivenhoe Park has been named one of the UK’s top 10 favourite green spaces once again after winning the Green Flag People’s Choice Awards 2023.

Beautiful parkland is just a few steps from Parkside and the Innovation Centre, and is much loved by University staff, students and alumni plus local residents. 

Thousands of members of the public cast their vote for their favourite parks across the UK as part of the People's Choice Awards and Wivenhoe Park has won a place in the People’s Choice top 10 for the sixth year running.

Grounds Manager Mick Minshull said: “It gives me a great sense of satisfaction to know we are providing an area of outstanding beauty to take a break in and enjoy.”
