Formby Pool

Formby Pool and Park, commissioned by Formby Land Trust
Working closely with Feilden Clegg Bradley Studios, Camlin Lonsdale designed this new public park at the centre of the town to reflect the wind sculpted landscape of the Lancashire coast.  Seaside dunes and groins are mimicked by undulating informal grassland, polished concrete sitting walls and ornamental plantings. The result is a distinctive and well loved open space asset for the town and a responsive setting for its centrepiece; a new swimming pool which won a RIBA award for its architects.  Camlin Lonsdale have recently been appointed to undertake the detailed design of the second phase of inward investment for the park.
