Project Overview/ Summary:

As one of the most prestigious development sites in York, Surface was proud to have been part of the project team.

The first phase of the project is now complete and open to the public. A new public park utilises the existing trees and landscape features to create an instant landscape that links visually and physically into the development site, creating valuable local amenity space.  We have used pedestrian orientated shared surfaces to ensure the site is accessible to all and designed a new play area within the park that encourages natural play.
