This 3 acre public park is part of a 20 acre Retail Park master planned for J Sainsbury in a limited competition, with two Superstores, Restaurants, Shop Units and Housing.
The ‘Living Park’ is a progression from the ‘Source of Life’ at the entrance with pergola centred on an abstract sculpture with moving water by a local artist.
A strong axis of fastigiate trees directs people to the ‘Theatre of Life’, a formal circle ringed by a metal arbour. When the act of ‘walking through’ or ‘sitting and looking’ evokes varied responses from people.
Paths meander to the ‘Play of Life’ for toddlers and older children.
