King George V Park
The London Borough of Newham commissioned Sprunt to produce a Masterplan and playground design for King George V Park in Canning Town. Our Masterplan addressed key landscape issues and defined the best location for a new play area. We also produced an aspiring guide for the future of the park looking to facilitate a mix of functions; health and fitness; play and social spaces. A key element of the Masterplan was to view the whole park as a play resource, Play opportunities were located throughout the park stemming from the central hub of the new natural playground and redeveloped Visitor Centre. The Masterplan was developed through a series of workshops with local schools and public consultations. The play area is the first phase of the park redevelopment, with later phases planned subject to securing funding.
