Green space

Garden towns are by their nature green and at Otterpool Park an impressive half of the development area will be made up of green spaces.

As you would expect from a modern development that is 50% green space, urban and rural character come together at Otterpool Park – from our tree lined town centre street, a peaceful riverside area and attractive woodlands and hillside areas.

There will be a real variety of public spaces; parks, allotments, sports facilities, a nature reserve, a woodland country park and a riverside setting for the community. These areas are for everyone – those living at Otterpool Park and from neighbouring areas and further away.

Access to the existing countryside will be improved, strengthening links by improving and adding new footpaths and cycling routes and creating river and woodland walks.

The space around historic Westenhanger Castle and its former deer park will be opened up for public use, making a real feature of this neighbouring landmark location and creating a space that everyone can enjoy.
