We are pleased to announce that our Cheney Row Park project recently won a Pineapple Award 2021 in the ‘Public Space’ category!
Cheney Row was a former landfill site that, through remediation and community co-design, has been transformed. The £1.2m project was commissioned by Waltham Forest Council and opened in the summer. Over 1,300 people from the local area and beyond attended the launch day!
The previously empty 3ha now has:
- A new events space and outdoor stage where activities and performances can be held;
- A new playspace supporting active, social, sensory and creative play;
- 467 new trees to support biodiversity and ecological interest in this overlooked corner of the Lee Valley Regional Park; and
- A BMX cycling track opened up for new use supporting local cycling charity COG to run BMX sessions for young people.
