HLF’s splurge of just over £11m will help restore seven parks from Fife to London. Both funds meanwhile jointly awarded nearly 8m to four other parks.
HLF chief executive Carole Souter said: "The two lottery funds are working with local authorities and communities to ensure public parks continue to receive the essential investment they need to safeguard their future."
BLF chair Nat Sloane added: "Investing in parks makes them safer and cleaner and protects the environment. Most importantly they help communities connect with each other and improve opportunities for local people to get the most from their park."
The winners included Alexandra Park in Manchester, with £2.2m from the HLF and BIG for an interactive learning programme and horticultural training.
Forty Hall Park in Enfield, London, won an HLF grant of £1.7m to uncover a 17th- and 18th-century landscape and restore historic features.
Cyfarthfa Park, Merthyr Tydfil, gained almost £2m from HLF to repair a bandstand, a walled garden and glass houses.
