Development plans for Marrowbone Millennium Park

Working in partnership with the Urban Villages Initiative, we have developed initial designs which will help to develop a thriving, welcoming and shared space in Marrowbone.   

The proposal is being designed for the needs of the local community, which will include facilities catering for a range of experiences.

Plans for the park focus on:

Improving facilities

  • New playground - relocation and redesign a new, larger playground with equipment for children of all ages and abilities.

  • Sports facilities - widening and lengthening the existing 3G pitch and building a new changing pavilion. The plan also includes the installation of a new, free-to-use, multi-use games area (MUGA) for a variety of ball sports.

  • Event space - retention and improvement of the large grass area to allow for events such as summer festivals and community fun days.

Improving safety

  • Lighting - installation of lighting throughout the park to improve visibility during the hours of darkness.

  • Reducing thick woodland - thinning out woodland along Jamaica Road to improve sightlines right across the park.

  • Boundary fencing - replacement of the existing fencing along Oldpark Road with new attractive and robust fencing.

Improving accessibility

  • New stepped entrance - improved access to the park from Jamaica Road.

  • Additional entrance - creation of a new entrance at the northern corner of the park.

  • Existing entrance - improvements to the appearance of the existing entrance on Oldpark Road.

Current stage of development

Following an extensive public consultation, we are now finalising designs. A new planning application will be submitted in the near future.
