Woodhouse Urban Park is a key feature of the regeneration project for South Kilburn by the London Borough of Brent that aims to make the area a better place to live by offering an accessible and welcoming environment for the existing and wider community along with the general public.

The park was designed by Erect Architecture as part of the ambitious regeneration programme in South Kilburn. As part of the project, Ground Control is engaged with the South Kilburn Trust Group in its establishment of the new Friends of Woodhouse Urban Park group, which will take ownership and be responsible for the management of the site.

Ground Control has involved members of the group throughout the project in order for them to better understand the landscaping works carried out and so assist their long-term management of the park for years to come.

"This new park is part of the regeneration of South Kilburn and is situated amid residential development," said the judges. "There was close community involvement in the design of the park, which comprises timber play equipment, seating, grassed areas and trees and shrubs. The contractor has demonstrated very high standards of landscape construction in the execution of the design, providing residents and families from the local area with a wonderful outdoor space and play facility."
