April 2011 update: First part of the Green Ribbons scheme for Parson Cross Park implemented - in the form of the planing of Elm trees at the gateways, to celebrate the local place-names (Elm Green, Elm Lane etc)

Apr 2011 update: Chaucer Square soft-landscape design scheme begins to take shape - adjacent to the new Learning Centre by Schmidt Hammer Lassen Architects.

Summer 2011 update: Parson Cross Park entrance designs implemented.



"The entrance markers at Parson Cross Park have come out really well - they're very striking and give a real sense of presence and lift to the park. Well done. It came together very nicely."
