"I would like to congratulate the parks team for this great achievement and thank them for all their hard work throughout the year."
He added: "A big thank you also goes to our grounds maintenance team at John O'Connor and all the friends and community groups that get involved with their local parks to help make them special places to visit.
"I would also like to thank all those who use the parks and take time to enjoy them - we should all be very proud of these awards.
