Think about these project ideas.
  • The Loop Path - introduce an attractive walking route around the park, suitable for all
  • Hubs - Develop the three existing ‘hubs’ of Coalie Park into a more welcoming and engaging riverside space. Waterside steps, area upstream of the Great Junction St bridge and the brick structures where the river turns and walkway splits
  • Vegetation / habitat works - manage the trees, shrubs and grasslands to provide better views and more diverse habitat for wildlife
  • Art works and Active Recreation - utilise the existing hard landscaping into a playful space and develop the potential for street art expression

Question Title

* 9. Do you agree or disagree with these design objectives for the space?

  Agree Neither Disagree
The project should make Coalie Park functional as a park for a wide range of users
The project brings together the existing spaces scattered throughout this linear ‘park’ by giving them functions as a series of  ‘hubs’
The project should promote and encourage active travel by waymarking and improving the loop route 
The project should regain a connection with the river setting by re-establishing view corridors and visual connections
The project should bring the vegetation into active, positive management for biodiversity, and for a sense of safety and placemaking
