Milton Creek, Sittingbourne.

The new £2.11M riverside park at Milton Creek reconnects Sittingbourne’s historic creekside wharves and is a catalyst for regeneration.

Sittingbourne’s historic quays along Milton Creek were the focus for the town’s 19th century brick, cement and ship building industries. The mudflats and saltmarshes are juxtaposed against a backdrop of industry and landfill sites so this is a challenging site, where the design proposals must balance the demands of biodiversity, flood defence, landscape, recreation, tourism, interpretation, public art, heritage, navigation and a new mixed use district.  Sheils Flynn led a multidisciplinary team to design and implement the park, which incorporates adventure play, a setting for community events, car park, interpretative trail and a sequence of public artworks.
