The best Park competition was a new category introduced by in conjunction with the RHS in 2014.Due to the success, the competition is being expanded in 2015. This time the parks will be able to be judged either on the main tour, or judged separately during July and August.

Plans are still in an early stage, but the parks will probably be judged out of 5 Stars. Each park will receive a plaque to display in the Park to show their award.
