Margaret MacMillan Park, SE8

Part of the Deptford and New Cross Links programme – which aims to improve walking and cycling routes – this revitalisation project incorporated an improved network of footpaths, interspersed with a series of new meeting points and social spaces within the Macmillan Park. ‘Rooms’ of planting and seating areas have created relaxing spaces, whilst the park enjoys splashes of colour throughout provided by diverse planting. A series of timber sculptures on a secondary path has added vertical interest and a feature in the landscape that can be used for seating or play.
