Riverside Parks, Maidenhead, Berkshire
(For Royal Borough of Windsor & Maidenhead)
We were commissioned by Windsor & Maidenhead council to produce a masterplan for parks & open spaces on Maidenhead Riverside, including Ray Mill Island, Bridge Gardens, Reitlinger Open Space & Guards Club Park. An important consideration in the design was to allow each open space to retain its individual identity. It was also essential to maintain some continuity & linkage between the riverside open spaces.
The project focuses mainly on soft landscape improvements & enhancing the existing landscape with new features including a wildflower meadow, improved paths & routes through the parks, & restoring historical focal points such as the original Edwardian landing stages & the stone water trough as a working fountain.
