Consultation, framework plan and environmental improvements.
Key aspects of this project for Islington Greenspace centred on the need to restore the Peace Garden, with a sculpture commemorating the Hiroshima bomb, on the need to improve children’s play, and on the need to increase the safety and useability of the place.
A special on site consultation event named Alice in Wonderpark used methods such as games, treasure hunt, lemon tart prizes, competitions and lots of listening to engage the community.
Extensive negotiation was necessary to consider how to identify priorities for change, how to respond to the street drinkers, and how to increase the visibility, use, and safety of the park.
