Congo Park - Community Park - Ekurhuleni

Design - 2019
Construction - 2019/20

This neighborhood park in Vosloorus provides much needed recreational amenity to the local low-income community and the adjacent public school.

LASquare working in team with Silverhorns Consulting provided the design for this functional park that offers a multi-sports court; picnic areas; children playground; skate park and outdoor gym equipment for the active youth.
Reshaping of this gently sloping property and creating a raised platform with a number of benches and the playground equipment in the center of the park, allows for good visibility throughout the entire site, thus improving the safety of visitors and effective ability of parents for monitoring of all activities.

The natural subgrades at this site contain a significant number of large boulders, which were utilized to create an informal play and recreation area.
The majority of local visitors will come to the park on foot; however, the provision of small parking area was intended to serve the community during organized events.
