A radical renewal by BOGL has transformed community park Remisepark from an anti-social area to a destination. The project was part of a larger local transformation to improve safety for the surrounding social housing complex and protect the area against flooding. 


Remisepark solves social and climactic challenges through landscape architecture. The transformation addressed local residents’ sense of security, while adapting the space to withstand the increasing pressures of flooding. Additionally, the park  improved local biodiversity with new plantings of trees, bushes and flowers. 

The project ties together different park areas and activities, while enhancing its existing qualities. A snaking path connects different sections while respecting the footprint of existing trees. The path’s outer edges provide a guide for the visually impaired, and improved lighting has made the park feel safer. A newly planted Alder forest and wadi collect and lead rainwater, and raised footbridges make the area accessible even when flooded.  


Remisepark has successfully combined a huge number of functions without removing much-loved existing spaces. The park has created a new narrative and sense of local pride, as a space for community-building, physical activity, and nature experiences in an otherwise densely built-up area.
