Dean Gardens

Dean Gardens in West Ealing is changing. As part of the West Ealing Liveable Neighbourhoods project, Ealing Council and TfL are undertaking ambitious improvements to the park, encouraging cycling and active travel and making the park a safer, greener, and more enjoyable space to spend time.

New Practice have been commissioned by Ealing Council to lead on an exciting engagement programme, helping to shape both the design of the park and build skills and capacity amongst the local community to explore new uses of the space once redevelopment is complete.

Working alongside Landscape Architects Kinnear Landscape Architects, this programme has included extensive surveying and observation of how the park is used now and workshops and events with local people to understand how they would like to use the park in the future.

 
 
For the remainder of 2019, we will be working with community organisations and local residents to deliver the Dean Gardens Activation Grants, a programme of up-skilling and support to prototype new ways of using the park. This will include community growing and youth-led projects, with a range of tours, workshops and funding to support local people to trial their own ideas of how to make the park a more vital and vibrant place.

This process will launch with the Dean Gardens Mixer, a workshop where local community organisations and residents are invited to join us to shape the direction of these projects through collaborative workshop activities.
