Heybourne Park, Barnet


This vast open space is at the centre of a major regeneration programme to transform the Grahame Park Estate. The park is the focus for community recreation and its design accommodates a diversity of needs, including the transformation of an existing pond system into an ecologically rich area for wildlife. The plans reorientate the estate, connecting it with the surrounding area and integrating homes and services.

The community focus is evident in a wide range of attractions, including play space, activity space encouraging experimental play and formal facilities for football and other organised sports. The completed park also includes a neighbourhood play area, an amphitheatre/performance space, dog exercise areas and a health and fitness trail.
