A vital benefit of the Royal Pier Waterfront development is the improvement of Mayflower Park. The park will be enlarged and enhanced so that it can both accommodate the annual PSP Southampton Boat Show and provide an asset for the city for the remainder of the year. The design of the space will be flexible and contemporary with a simple geometric layout that can accommodate the Boat Show and also be sub-divided to provide a range of activities through the rest of the year.
The park will include:
Children’s play facilities ;
Potential for sports pitches towards the north of the park. There is space to provide a series of multi-purpose games courts with demountable fences that could be removed for the annual PSP Southampton Boat Show; and
Potential for sculpture, artwork or pavilions alongside the water’s edge that help to draw people towards the water and identify with the site;
Improvements led by world class landscape architecture practice, Hyland Edgar Driver
We are confident that these improvements will enhance Mayflower Park and that a revitalised park will be a welcome addition to the recreation opportunities available to the people of Southampton.
