The Parkland Quarter

The Parkland Quarter is the garden for the community. It’s a green space for recreation and relaxation. At the centre of Alton West, it invites visitors in but exists for the benefit of estate residents.

In the middle of the Parkland Quarter is Downshire Field, a great green dish surrounded by the existing residential blocks of the Estate. To bring greater purpose and activity to this landscape, a new neighborhood hub is proposed at Portswood Place. Throughout the Parkland Quarter, existing paths and playspaces are sensitively upgraded, providing better facilities without changing the existing layout of the estate.
