North Cator Park transforms 3.5h of an existing underused parkland into a biodiverse park for people and wildlife, offering new social places for the local community to grow.
The redesign includes a new chalk stream which forms the backbone of the landscape approach, connecting the existing waterbodies with a dry riverbed and braided streams and inviting the public to discover the natural environment.
At the highest and most northerly point of the park, and at the source of the chalk stream we have created a 3,000m3 wild play space creating a biophilic experience for ages 0 to 100.
