The project aims to transform the site into a new recreational and cultural hub and will provide a permanent home for the relocated 2015 MPavilion.
The project will create a new sport fitness park including outdoor exercise equipment, ping pong tables and multi purpose spaces for outdoor yoga, dance, aerobics and personal training classes.
In addition to this the design will enhance the green park and cater for quite garden spaces to meet, sit, eat, read and relax.
Iconic Docklands materials such as concrete, steel and timber are counterbalanced with generous lawns and gardens to invite the visitor to sit, eat, read, play and socialise amongst the hustle and bustle of city.
Stage One of the project was officially opened to the public in August 2016. Stage 2 is currently under construction and scheduled for completion in June 2017.
