Kingston First and Kingston Council are leading on a public realm initiative to create inclusive happy spaces within the town centre for local residents, visitors and business community to unwind, enjoy and connect with nature.

Kingston based landscape architects Davies White Ltd and The Edible Bus Stop design studio have been appointed to lead on the engagement and design to transform Eagle Brewery Wharf on Kingston’s riverside and Memorial Gardens in the centre of the town into green spaces that improve the pedestrian flow around the town, encourage wellbeing, social and cultural activities and acknowledge their historical significance.

Members of the public, community groups, residents and local businesses are invited to share their views on how to shape these spaces through a blended mix of online and COVID-19 safe in-person events. Following engagement and feedback, the final design ideas will be available online and exhibited in the spaces by the end of June 2021.

The first public engagement event took place on 1 March and more events will be scheduled for next month = details will be posted here soon. To sign-up, please send an email to design@davieswhite.co.uk.

This initiative is part of Kingston town’s public realm strategy, which sets out a blueprint for how public spaces could be invested in to improve the experience of Kingston, encourage more people to move around all parts of the town and ensure that the town’s culture, heritage and riverside assets continue to be developed.
