Jayne Murray, a public artist

Working with local residents to reconsider and design their park, and working as part of a design team to create the residents’ ideas.

Mainly young people came to the project base (an empty flat on the fiveways estate) at the advertised twice - weekly sessions. The sessions were workshop based, either in the flat or on the land earmarked as a park.

After initial mapping on who uses the land and how, and trips to other outdoor spaces, the focus became; movement and access through the park, creating social opportunities, play provision that was more natural than manufactured, and allowing space for letting off steam.

The design is awaiting implementation.
