Project Name: All-Mead Gardens
Client: Kingsmead Regeneration
All-Mead Gardens is the key park serving Kingsmead Housing Estate in Hackney. The formerly derelict site has been transformed into an exciting and challenging water play park, with cannons, giant climbing structures designed by children, a high-speed cableway and a tower slide as the centrepiece.
At all stages of the design. local children contributed to the many interactive art features. The park offers spaces for play, local performances, community learning and contact with nature. Quiet seating is provided on an inclined lawn and artists wall.
The community and herb gardens are flanked by mature olive trees and exotic species.
