Coventry's Linear Park scoops second major award

Coventry Editorial 23rd Nov, 2022   0

COVENTRY’S new Linear Park has received a West Midlands National Park Award due to its innovation.

Regeneration firm Complex Development Projects (CDP) won the prize as part of the WMNP International Lecture and Awards.

The park opened in the spring and acts as a 700-metre environmental corridor from Belgrade Plaza that passes under the ring road to Naul’s Mill Park and connects to communities in the north.

Over 1,000 trees and saplings have been planted to help screen the park from the ring road’s impact while Radford Brook has been brought back to the surface in a valley of wildflowers.

Other features include a children’s play area, a climbing wall and a ‘Zen Arch’ structure across the brook.

This is the second award the park has received after scooping the Community & Schools Development prize at the BALI National Landscape Awards.

Katie Burn, of CDP said: “We were delighted to receive praise that the Linear Park has brought a sense of transformation and renewal to an unexpected place.

“To receive this accolade just months after winning an honour at the largest landscape awards in Europe underlines the impact the Linear Park is having and is a real coup to everyone involved in the project.”
