Nell Fisher Reserve
A small but finely crafted design, this urban park in the Birkenhead town centre forms part of the wider redevelopment which includes a new community library and Plunket facility. Reset has lead a program of consultation and design, building consensus around the protection of existing trees and a myriad of existing memorials. The spacious lawns are framed by large existing trees and opens onto a civic plaza space which is populated by three public art pieces by Jeff Thompson. The infant’s playground is nestled within rich native shrub planting and includes bespoke seating elements. A series of feature up-lights provide for a dynamic night time experience, illuminating the Memorial and specimen trees.
