Ledgowan Place

New play area, community garden and residents' park

Incorporating a children's play area, community garden and resident's park space, the development at Ledgowan Place is designed to redress years of neglect within the local community facilities. Fundamental to all the proposals is a focus on promoting a healthy lifestyle. 'Growing things' are found throughout, whether in the community garden or in the large gabion planter that forms a boundary to the play park; designed to educate and inspire the children with plants and herbs they grow themselves. The inclusive play park itself, has been laid out in linear 'activity course' arrangement and is based on the concept of 'unstructured play', with all apparatus permitting imaginative use. The scheme forms an attractive exterior hub for the local community, while introducing a vital sense of energy and purpose back into the space.
