“The facilities are great and varied, it plays host to many wonderful events and of course now celebrates Oswestry’s most famous son, Wilfred Owen.

“It is fully deserving of this award and voting couldn’t be easier, so make sure you join me in clicking that button and voting Cae Glas.”

Cae Glas is among 364 parks and green spaces in the running to be awarded UK’s Favourite Park 2022.
