Historically herds of deer totalling over 400 roamed the vast Wynyard Hall estate which includes today’s Wynyard Park. Because Wynyard Park is a landscape-led development and we aim to evoke this rural heritage, we have adopted the deer as our crest. Our entrance sculpture of grazing deer and other deer sculptures planned for key points throughout the Park represent a promise of freedom within a beautiful and secure setting.
Not since Victorian times has art played such a crucial part in giving places a popular identity – witness the Angel of the North, the fountains in Sheffield and indeed the water sculpture at the entrance to Wynyard Park’s Business quarter. In a similar way we are committed to investing heavily in original artworks at key gateways and locations throughout Wynyard Park, focussing appropriately on birds, flora and animals.
As you go around Wynyard Park it does appear indeed as one big park, thanks to the inspired planting of flowers and shrubs in all neighbourhoods, adding colour to what is already a green and pleasant place. Britain In Bloom takes place each year, focusing nationally on community action in transforming spaces. Wynyard Park will participate fervently in the annual competition to promote our belief that gardens make the world a more beautiful place.
