Priory Park in Southend-on-Sea added the biggest premium, with properties near or with a view of the park an average 165 per cent (£444,177) more expensive than the town's average property price. Houses near or overlooking Westfield Park in Aberdeen were also an average 63 per cent more expensive than the average Aberdeen property, according to HouseSimple.
The company's chief executive Alex Gosling said: "In large urban sprawls where many properties don't have a garden or access to a communal garden, living near public parks or green spaces is often one of the top wishes amongst buyers, and that high demand inevitably impacts on the price they will pay.
"Many buyers may not realise just how much of a premium they could be paying for the pleasure of living close to a 'free' park. That doesn't mean there aren't good value properties around some of the UK's urban green spaces, but for real value it's maybe worth looking at roads that are a few minutes further away."
