The open space forms the centrepiece of the Swiss Cottage civic site redevelopment which includes the refurbished library, sports centre, community centre and theatre. The open space will include a water feature with angled jets to be lit in the evening. The park will be landscaped with shrubs and trees (mainly cherries for spring colour and maples for autumn colour). The lawn areas will be banked in a series of terraces. There will be a toddlers’ play area and an all weather five-a-side football pitch. The open space will be re-opened in the Winter of 2005/06.
