Spa Fields - gathering area

n the Finsbury and Clerkenwell areas of EC1, green space is scarce. Spa Fields was a valuable but unsafe 19th century park (15ha) lost behind the trendy restaurant/deli strip of Exmouth Market

A range of community participation techniques was used to reconcile user conflicts and ensure that the park will survive once restored. Improvements include shelters designed and built by teenagers, dispersed (rather than fenced) play facilities, outdoor dining areas for licensed use, a completely new planting structure, and a restored central building to house Islington’s Ranger Service and transform park safety

Did you know?
Parklife nurtured enthusiasm for the project and increased the buy-in from £400,000 to £1m. Facilities for revenue generation will mean the park almost pays for itself.
