Residents passing by The Walnuts Leisure Centre recently will have been pleasantly surprised to see that a once dead concrete square has been transformed into a bright and attractive green space with the Orpington 1st Pop Up Pallet Park.
Installed as part of Orpington 1st Business Improvement District’s London in Bloom project, the park makes use of recycled pallets and artificial grass, and is adorned with flowers, creating a mini Oasis and breathing life and colour into what was a drab and underutilised space.
Several seating areas provide a great spot to relax in, including the impressive pallet bench which runs the length of the east wing of the park.
Orpington 1st Executive Director, Sharon Baldwin, said “The Orpington business community is committed to improving the Look & Feel of the town centre for the benefit of all who use it, and in the BID team we’re always looking for innovative ways to enhance the environment and increase dwell time. We’re delighted to bring the Pop Up Pallet Park to Orpington, and we hope that shoppers and workers alike will take the opportunity to drop by.”
Residents have already been taking to social media to share their #PalletPark experiences.
The Pallet Park will be in situ until September.
All are welcome!
