Conceptual Sketch Design.

The brief was to create an attractive local park from a derelict area of old building foundations, hardstandings and bunds. It was developed in conjunction with community artists building on work done at Jaywick with the Jaywick Green Team from 2001.

A key aspect of the project was development of the community around the park, involving local people in its design and planting.The community park in Brooklands Gardens is a simple scheme which includes a copse of pines, an avenue, grassed areas for play, bulbs and wild flowers, and a garden in memory of those who lost their lives in the floods of 1953.
