Higher Memorial Park

Higher Memorial Park, Oldham for Oldham Metropolitan Borough Council
At Higher Memorial Park, Camlin Lonsdale have re-invented the existing, uninspiring playground as a distinctive and engaging play woodland. The existing trees and the local `Failsworth Pole’ were the key design drivers for the new, stimulating play space which encourages emotional and intellectual development, role play and story telling, as well as physical challenge.  Naturalistic planting and surfacing materials create a variety of patterns and textures under the tree canopy.  The space is now more heavily used and by a broader age range.
