Details & Location

The regeneration of Coronation Garden, a small urban park in the centre of Penrith.

Status

Project completed September 2012

Stephenson Halliday prepared the detailed design and contract drawings for the project, working closely with artist Karen MacDougall, Penrith and Eden Museum and Eden District Council.

The project was a community led by the Penrith Rotary Club to mark their Centenary celebrations. Established to celebrate the Coronation of King George VI in 1937, Coronation Garden had become neglected and uninviting, subject to vandalism and with low levels of public use.

The project comprised the installation of sculptures and banners designed by schools and other sectors of the community working with artist Karen MacDougall, with the garden improved and renovated to provide a setting for the artworks and historical information displays.  The design included the restoration of boundary railings and entrance gates, removal of inappropriate tree planting and hedging and the establishment of sensory planting, footpaths and seating to provide a welcoming and accessible space for all.
