One kilometre park will be open 24 hours

Ballymore has unveiled its plans for a linear park in Battersea that will run from Vauxhall Station to Battersea Power Station.

Designed by landscape architects Camlins, the one-kilometre long park will run through the Terry Farrell-masterplanned Nine Elms, past Embassy Gardens and Kieran Timberlake’s new US Embassy.

Huw Morgan, director of Camlins, said: “The Linear Park is a new London green: a fusion of enclosed garden squares, open green commons and majestic tree-lined streets. A 24-hour park for a 24-hour city.”

    Linear Park = footpath + grass... + play space + trees + birdsong + insects + storm attenuation + traffic-free cycle route + urban cooling + PM10 particle filtration + shelter + shade....
    Shall I go on?
    This is the stuff that makes high-density development work. A good piece of masterplanning. Hopefully implementation of the developments along the Park will ensure good levels of funding/revenue for the build and management in the long term - for free public use in perpetuity.

    A more balanced report might have featured images that captured how effectively this new scheme will integrate with Battersea Power Station, given the ongoing the sensitivity of conservation/preservation issues.
