Client: Lancaster City Council , Morecambe Town Council
Project Team: BCA Landscape, Birse Coastal
A major new 1 Ha public park for Morecambe at West End Gardens together with a new 1.5km promenade at Sandylands as part of the £28million coastal defence scheme. The scheme is part of a wider area regeneration initiative by the West End Partnership as developed in full consultation with the local community, and was launched with a community celebration party.
The project was delivered under a partnering arrangement with Lancaster City Council and Birse Civils. BCA Landscape are delighted that the park has become the regular home for the annual Make My Day! FREE festival jam-packed with things to make and do during which the promenade is transformed into a creative theme park for the day.
It is a celebration of making and doing things which brings the community together, particularly focussed on inter-generational activities, which has been running for a number of years.
