Central Park

Sprunt worked with the London Borough of Newham and the Heritage Lottery Fund to reinvigorate this popular Victorian park in East Ham. The team developed a design for the park which balanced heritage and conservation with the needs of a 21st century park in a busy urban area. Historical elements were carefully restored to strengthen the Victorian infrastructure of the park and an exciting and biodiverse planting strategy was added with ornamental grasses and a coordinated array of hot and cool colours from Mediterranean and native perennials. The team also worked with an artist to weave the memories of park users into the design through a series of markers and sculptural elements.
