Two west London parks are vying for public votes in an X Factor style competition that will see ten parks awarded £400,000 each.
Both South Park, in Peterborough Road, Fulham, and Hammersmith Park, in South Africa Road, White City, have recently held events to drum up support for their bids.
As the surviving part of the Japanese garden created for the 1910 White City Exhibition, Hammersmith Park honoured its origins with the planting of six cherry trees in an event attended by Minister Ken Okaniwa, from the Japanese embassy, on Saturday. A bouncy castle also provided entertainment for enthusiastic youngsters.
Meanwhile, the Fulham green space attracted more than 200 people on January 10 with a fun day that included a climbing wall and refreshments.
Hammersmith and Fulham Council says it would restore South Park to its original Edwardian splendour and improve sports facilities if the park wins.
In Hammersmith Park, the prize money would be spend on restoring the garden and lake, and improving wildlife habitats and park facilities.
