Studio Egret West has designed Mayfield Park, Manchester's first central park in over a century.
Situated beside Piccadilly train station, the 6.5-acre park rejuvenates a formerly derelict industrial zone that once drove Manchester's textile industry during the Industrial Revolution.
Encompassing 120 trees, 120,000 plants and a riverside walkway, the park features an amphitheatre-style lawn, walkways and a substantial play area.
The adjacent River Medlock, concealed under concrete for 50 years, was revealed, adding natural allure to the urban space.
The park accompanies a neighbourhood housing 1,500 homes, commerce and leisure facilities.
