In 2010, 2011, 2012, 2013, 2014, 2015, 2016 and 2017 Musgrave Park was awarded the Green Flag Award, which recognises the best open spaces in the UK.
Musgrave Park also contains an innovative therapy garden, which was developed with the support of several nearby schools. The garden combines different therapeutic features in one space to improve the quality of life, development and wellbeing of local residents. A 'whispering' wall is the central focus of the garden, which is fitted with acoustic equipment and a mosaic finish to encourage sensory, stimulatory and interactive play.
Other features include:
• a story circle and meeting area
• a willow tunnel
• a sand play area
• bed for planting designed with disabled access
• musical instruments
• community artwork
• play equipment.
The therapy garden was made possible through the support from the European Union's European Regional Development Fund (ERDF) - PEACE III.
