Landscape Plans

The project aim is to redevelop the grounds of a 1962 bowls pavilion in Grange Gardens, Grangetown, to create a biodiverse, environmentally rich and sustainable outdoor space for use and enjoyment by the community and that is maintained by the community.

Co-produced landscape proposals include surface drainage raingardens and ponds; an outdoor classroom and planters for school and community use; an orchard; a ‘Welsh Manuka’ pollinator garden developed with Cardiff University pharmacists; enhanced biodiversity for improved air, soil, water and noise quality in an industrially polluted landscape; and a green for community activities.

Activities on site will include regular growing and garden maintenance workshops to train local residents in seasonal growing and in how to take care of the grounds and its features.
