The Park within Elephant Park wins a coveted Golden Pineapple at the 2022 Pineapple Awards
We are delighted to announce that Gillespies and Lendlease picked up a coveted Golden Pineapple at the 2022 Developer Magazine Pineapple Awards for Best Public Space for The Park within Elephant Park.
park is a spectacular green oasis at the heart of the ground-breaking
revitalisation of Elephant & Castle by Lendlease and Southwark Council. At
2 acres, it’s an inclusive and sustainable community space featuring expansive
lawns, colourful rain gardens, the landmark water playscape, Elephant Springs,
and pedestrian walkways nestled within naturalistic planting. The park offers
everyone living, visiting or working in the area unique and unforgettable
social and recreational experiences and an opportunity to slow down, relax and
connect with nature.
It's wonderful to see the judges recognising the significant contribution this space is delivering not just for the Elephant and Castle community but for all those visiting the area seeking a closer connection with nature.
The wider Elephant Park project also scooped the award for ‘Place in Progress’.
