Rushden Lakes

Work has finished on our Garden Square scheme at Rushden Lakes! Set within the beautiful Nene Valley, the vision for the public realm at Garden Square stemmed from the idea of creating a verdant oasis in this corner of Rushden Lakes, giving visitors the opportunity to relax in a calm space surrounded by greenery. A natural play space creates an exciting opportunity for children to explore in amongst fallen logs and boulders and insect and bird habitats nestled in the trees boost the habitat for locally important species.
It's been a joy to see the scheme come to life and we look forward to seeing it bloom over the coming months!
