PARK HERE & PLAY was an ideas competition for the temporary transformation of the public realm outside Leeds Art Gallery.

The project builds on a previous temporary installation delivered by DLA Design on St Paul’s Street and the popular pop up park on Cookridge Street delivered by Leeds City Council.

DLA worked closely with Leeds Art Gallery & Leeds City Council to organise a competition, open to alumni of Leeds School of Architecture and Landscape Architecture.

Together we wanted to inspire residents, workers, visitors, children and families to re-imagine the space.

There was something for everyone to enjoy including a programme of fun, playful, creative activities and places to sit, eat, relax and play.
