The new Urban Park in Swadlincote is a important part of the vision for Cadley Park Masterplan on the west of Swadlincote. The Urban Park will provide high quality public green spaces for residents and visitors to the town. The park incorporates key cycling elements such as a family cycle route, a pump track and a learn to ride area into a valuable outdoor space for Cadley Park. The pump track design was developed by specialist BMX and Pump Track Designers Clarke & Kent. As part of our work we assisted the client, South Derbyshire District Council, with successful funding bids to British Cycling and Sport England.
Trees will be planted in key spaces throughout the park along with colourful perennial planting to the main park entrance. A diverse range of species rich lawns and meadows will ensure maximum ecological value across the 4.8ha site, as well as displaying seasonal colour for visitors.
The project is managed by Turner+ Townsend and the civils and landforms design has been developed with Alan Wood and Partners.
