ELEPHANT PARK, Elephant & Castle, LONDON
Elephant Park sits on the site of the former Heygate Estate. The flats were demolished between 2011 and 2014, marking the beginning of the regeneration of the Elephant and Castle area of South London.
Green space is at the heart of this £2.3 billion regeneration project and the contractor’s work at Elephant Park forms part of Phase One of the green space development. Once complete it will be the largest new green space in Central London for 70 years and will support the sustainability goals of the regeneration.
Works undertaken by the contractor included path construction with surfacing and paving, play surfacing, installation of FSC certified timber sleepers and Corten sleeper borders, installation of play equipment and street furniture, creation of rain garden areas, tree planting, soft landscaping, and the installation of irrigation, lighting, power and CCTV services.
