FHA designed and implemented the Marylebone Gate Project in Regent’s Park to replace the well-worn, but very popular part of this Royal Park close to Marylebone Gate.
Client: The Royal Parks
Our design centered upon three themes:
Firstly, a ‘Retro zone’ retaining some of the traditional and consistently popular play elements such as swings, a roundabout and see-saw.
Secondly, a natural play area in a planted grass setting, which includes a willow tunnel and large fallen tree for climbing.
Thirdly, the distinctive character of the contemporary play area is inspired by the regular ‘Frieze Art Show’, which takes place each year in the adjacent park. This informed the spiral folly and central play zone elements.
