8 Sep 2022

Claremont Park is the first of seven parks delivered in the new neighbourhood of Brent Cross Town, a joint venture between Related Argent and Barnet Council to develop a large-scale mixed-use development including new homes, retail and office space, improved schools and greenspaces.

Claremont Park is an important neighbourhood space for the local community to relax and spend time in, a place to be active, play and socialise, and interact with the natural environment. The new park expands on what was an existing open space that needed rejuvenation and now provides a 4.5-acre green space. The park will bring together imaginative play facilities, water features, nature trails, a new community-run Kiosk, and over 300 new trees, which have been planted across the park.

Environmentally the design aims to maximise its natural qualities, more than 300 new trees have been planted. Wildflower meadows mix with a strong theme of water, including a large pond fed by swales. These features ensure that Claremont Park will play an important role in improving the local area’s biodiversity. The new play area forms a social heart to the park, a space where children of all ages and their families can enjoy themselves.
