Lloyd Park in East London is to reopen next week following a £6m restoration of the green space and William Morris Gallery that sits in the park.
The project, part funded by the Heritage and Big Lottery Funds, included restoring historic features such as a medieval moat and island. Meanwhile recreation, play and sporting areas were created by landscape architect Plincke.
Senior associate Matthew Wigan said one of the main design elements was the creation of a 2,000sq m William Morris garden with the types of perennial plants that inspired many of the patterns used in his wallpapers and fabrics.
The 12ha park sits in a multi-cultural and ethnically diverse part of Walthamstow and extensive consultation including a focus on groups within sections of the community who might be considered excluded or under-represented was undertaken.
Work included remodelling the drive into a circular sweep up to the 18th-century listed house.
HLF London committee chairman Wesley Kerr said: "The £3.5m which we and the Big Lottery Fund have awarded means Waltham Forest has been able to undertake a once-in-a-generation restoration of ornamental gardens, park and gallery."
