Urban design and landscape architect Adams & Sutherland will transform Lowlands Recreation Ground into a multiuse performance space by the end of August 2013. A public consultation will inform the final plans.
The council secured £1.8m of funding from the mayor of London and will use it’s own cash for the project, one of several to improve the network of public spaces as part of the 15-year Heart of Harrow regeneration.
The redefined park with its outdoor performance space will provide a range of features to promote culture and art in Harrow, said Adams and Sutherland director Liz Adams.
"This is an optimistic project and a tremendous opportunity to both reinstate and reinvent Lowlands as an important open space for local people, and to reconnect this part of Harrow with the town centre and Harrow-on the-Hill."
Planning and regeneration spokesman councillor Keith Ferry said: "The Lowlands Recreation Ground project is another piece of the jigsaw that makes up the Heart of Harrow regeneration."
The Heart of Harrow forms part of the council’s’ core strategy. Targeted planning of big developments aims to draw fresh investment into the borough which is estimated to be worth approximately £400m.
