Devonshire Green Park, Sheffield

Devonshire Green Park, Sheffield

On January 29 2007, Sheffield City Council announced plans to upgrade Devonshire Green. The £1.6 million project was designed by the City Council's Regeneration Projects Design Team and funded by building developers who had built housing developments in the West Street area such as West One which faces onto Devonshire Green. The redevelopment included the complete relaying of all the turfed areas and the planting of 340 square meters of high-quality flower beds which contain more than 23,000 bulbs and 22 semi-mature trees. Sculptured “sitting walls” were created to provide 184 meters of seating and enclosure for the planting beds which line the boulevards which have improved lighting. A terraced grass amphitheater space was also created which can be used for events and festivals. The skatepark remained open during the redevelopment which was carried out by the contractors Wrekin and the revamped park was reopened in Spring 2008.
