Bridgefield Park

Kent Ashford Borough Council £700k 7ha 2018

Project details

Bridgefield Park is the first new park to be developed for over twenty years in the Ashford area. It uses land adopted from developers via the S106 process to provide local amenity, recreation and wildlife. It has a large play area, grazing land for nature conservation, orchards, a new pedestrian footbridge, art sculptures, a small car park and informal recreational grounds among wildflower meadows and woodland.

The play is predominantly natural and reflects the history of the site with a theme of Iron Age settlements which have been found in the area. The park sits in a flood zone 3, bordered by the Ruckinge Dyke, and is of archaeological importance, both of which brought their own complex technical challenges. These have been carefully and sensitively managed, alongside opposing views and aspirations from the multiple stakeholders and community.
