An award winning redevelopment of an existing park in a particularly de¬prived neighbourhood of North Ken¬sington. The redesigned park is now a vital local asset in an area where the ratio of open space to population is by far the lowest in London.
The redesign involved major im¬provements to the park, new sports and play facilities focusing on the restoration of its centrepiece, a listed walled garden by the eminent Arts and Crafts architect, CFA Voysey.
The design was informed by exten¬sive consultation with user groups and stakeholders. The annual influx of tens of thousands of people into the park during the Notting Hill Car¬nival was also a significant factor influencing the revitalisation of the space.
