AAB architects, together with landscape architect Charlotte Mclean, worked with The Friends of Duke’s Meadows to develop a masterplan for the radical improvement of this 1920’s municipal park. The main objective was to revitalise run-down facilities, and provide a design framework for the development of an exciting and sustainable community-run park. The proposals include a new water-play area close to the hub of the existing facilities, and the removal of the original paddling pool (which needed complete reconstruction). Further to the completion of the water play area, fund-raising is continuing for the second phase.

Client: Friends of Duke’s Meadows
Masterplan: 2002
