'Chocolate Park'


In a preliminary design for the park in 2006, it was to be based on a theme from Roald Dahl's Charlie and the Chocolate Factory.  It has changed since and is now titled 'Chocolate Park' in the latest plan.

The design for the park is complete and includes a suspended play-pen built into a crane structure, flower gardens and a terraced area.

The terraced area can be used to organise temporary events such as small markets or concerts.

The crane is an oblique reference to the dockland's past and straddles the southern end of the park to form a fully-enclosed adventure space for children between the ages of 3 and 10.  However, the play area will not be the only function of the crane.  It is planned to project films on to the side of it when running an outdoor cinema event.

This fabulous new park in the city will be welcome by everyone.
