Coronation Gardens, Kidderminster Case Study

Posted on November 26, 2012 by Kora Habinakova There have been 0 comments

When the new the Coronation Gardens in Kidderminster were being planned, Wyre Forest District Council asked for Watco's expertise to assist with a project to renovate the main gateway to their town centre. Their aim was to provide an open space for the local community and performing arts associations.


Watco suggested that the Coronation Gardens project initially used Watco Flowtop®, as this pourable self-smoothing leveller is ideal for resurfacing rough or damaged concrete surfaces. It contains polyamide fibres, which reinforce the micro-structure to make it even stronger and improve its resistance to shocks and abrasion.


On top of this, Watco Anti Slip Traffic Paint was suggested. With a range of eight colours, the desired aesthetic finish could be achieved, whilst being both slip resistant and hard wearing.


The gardens feature a colourful psychedelic paving area based on a 1960s artwork, a selection of ornamental shrubs and trees, a turfed area and a wild flower meadow. They also contain public artwork which celebrates the musical history of the town.


This unique project was part of Wyre Forest District Council’s ReWyre initiative. The authority’s Parks and Green Spaces Section also worked with West Mercia Probation Service and other local organisations to transform the gardens.
