A flagship project to develop for recreational use, an extensive area of disused railway sidings at the ‘Gateway to Wales’. The design was developed simultaneously with a comprehensive community consultation exercise. The resulting ‘park’ combines many of the elements requested by the community in a series of linked spaces that provide recreation opportunities and wildlife habitat. The design contains many references to the former industrial use, with artefacts found during the scheme being used in fencing, seating and habitat creation measures.
