UK Landscape Award 2012

Sunset and Moonlit Parks, Park Central, Birmingham


Regional result: COMMENDED

Submitted by The Landscape Practice Group / Birmingham City Council

Sunset & Moonlit parks are two contemporary parks created to be at the heart of the 25ha Park Central mixed-use regeneration project adjacent to Birmingham City Centre.

 

The two parks were designed by The Landscape Practice Group at Birmingham City Council in conjunction with lead developer Crest Nicholson, joint land owners Optima community association and local residents.

 

Completed in 2007, the two award-winning parks together with the surrounding development have been recognised as exemplars of good practice in open space design and have transformed a previously neglected and run down city centre estate into a sustainable community where people want to live.
