East Park has been named the best local free day out in the Hull and East Riding Mumbler awards.
The park in Holderness Road pipped the Streetlife Museum into second place in the parenting community group’s first Family Awards, celebrating the best things to do for families in East Yorkshire.
Voting took place in January and February and results were due to be announced at an awards ceremony on Saturday 20 March before the event was cancelled due to the coronavirus pandemic. Results were instead announced online on Sunday 7 June.
Voting saw the public encouraged to nominate their favourites things to do with children in the region across eight categories.
The five most nominated in each category were then taken forward as finalists, with the public then voting again for the winners. More than 16,000 votes were cast by members of the public.
