Priory Country Park celebrates its place in the TripAdvisor Hall of Fame

Priory Country Park

For the fifth year in a row, Priory Country Park has received TripAdvisors’ ‘Certificate of Excellence’, earning the park a place in the site’s Hall of Fame.

The 2019 ‘Certificate of Excellence’ is recognition of the consistently high ratings the local country park receives from visitors on the TripAdvistor website.

The TripAdvisor Hall of Fame recognises those sites that receive these consistently high ratings for five years in a row.

Mayor Dave Hodgson said “It is great to see how highly rated and highly valued Priory Country Park is, by both local people and visitors from elsewhere.

“We are very proud of our fantastic local parks and open spaces across the Borough, from our country parks to the local neighbourhood playgrounds.

“My thanks go to the officers and all of our volunteers who work so hard throughout the year, maintaining and improving our fantastic parks, making them such great places to visit and enjoy.”
