Bramshill Road Open Space- Mayors Pocket Park Programme
Project Category: Public Sector organisation
Bramshill Road Open Space is located within Brent in Harlesden NW10.It is a 0.22 hectare open space sited in a densely populated area.
Harlesden, is an inner-city area of ethnic cultures, and one with high levels of deprivation and little open space.The park was known locally as a place for anti-social behaviour rather than a welcoming green space, its poor design contributed to this problem.
It is envisaged that the project will uplift the area creating a coherent pocket park.Culturally the impact will be to create a pocket park for a diverse local population while contributing to a sense of place for local residents.Socially, it will provide a meeting point and improve access between residential roads.It will enhance the locality and should encourage investment in the interlinked Harlesden High Road.The benefits of the pocket park are projected to reach approximately 7,000 households
New play equipment, including table tennis table, food growing area, and infrastructure and landscaping improvements are currently being implemented. On completion this will give locals a safe welcoming area to socialise and relax.
