Plans for the new Union Park revealed

09/09/2021 by Buildington
Quintain has revealed plans for a new seven-acre public park in Wembley Park.

The new Union Park is being developed on the site of the Yellow Car Park - a 1,000+ space car and coach park, which will be moved to a state-of-the-art, multi-storey car park nearby.

The southern section of the park in front of Canada Gardens is already in use. The north section of the park will feature a more ruggedly natural design and is expected to open in 2024.

Julian Tollast, Head of Masterplanning and Design at Quintain, commented: “We have put the park back into Wembley Park – as it was always meant to be. Union Park, Wembley Park’s first significant new green space since the 1870s, is so named because we want it to be a place for the community: a space where people can come together and enjoy nature. The past year and a half has shown, clearer than ever, how
important it is that we all have access to natural and wide-open green spaces.”

Cllr Shama Tatler, Lead Member for Regeneration, Property and Planning at Brent Council added: “Our vision for Wembley Park has always had the wellbeing of our communities and sustainability at its core. We have worked in partnership with Quintain to make sure a fantastic new neighbourhood is delivered.

“Access to nature and green spaces has never been more important and plays a crucial role in protecting and supporting mental health and wellbeing, which is why we worked hard to ensure the provision of
good quality spaces throughout the area.

“Union Park, spanning almost seven-acres, is a key feature of our transformation plan, carefully designed to ensure our residents and visitors have an abundance of space to relax, play, exercise and
reconnect with their natural surroundings.”
