Child at play in the award-winning play garden designed and built by Austen Associates for the Barretstown Children’s Charity in 2014

Over the last few years, Austen Associates have been commissioned to create parks on behalf of public bodies, private individuals and developers, as well as community groups keen to create special green spaces that enhance the quality of life for local residents and visitors.

Whilst we respond to the individual needs of our clients in regard to the design of the spaces, our philosophy is to help people create parks that have unique qualities in terms of layout, recreational facilities and planting design specific to their locality.  Where possible, we prefer to use natural play elements as part of the design.
