A new linear park projecting the ghosts of the site’s past, from the Orchards and Gardens of the seventeenth century to its industrialisation with iconic gas holder structures. Local school children have been involved in the researching and writing facts, figures and poetry to be inscribed in a serpentine paving feature that weaves through the space.
This park will provide a new link into Kingston town centre, away from the busy traffic and a place for toddlers to scoot, neighbours to chat and for students from the adjacent college to sit, mingle and show off.
Scope and Status: All RIBA stages
Consultants: CJTC Architects
