Arlington Square welcomes judges from the regions In Bloom competition+
Arlington Square Business Park last week welcomed judges from the Thames and Chilterns In Bloom competition.
Judges toured the park’s beautifully landscaped grounds, chosen by the Bracknell in Bloom committee as an example that best showcases Bracknell’s horticultural splendour. During their whistle-stop tour, delegates also visited children at the Sandy Lane Primary school, who last year helped to win Bracknell’s best school garden of the year competition. Other highlights included Great Hollands community garden and St Michael and St Mary Magdalene churchyard.
Goodman, which owns, developed and manages the park works to ensure that the grounds provide an environment of unrivalled quality for the benefit of employees on site and the local community.
Last year, to further enhance its offering, Goodman launched a competition for budding young artists from local schools, to design a statue for the centre of the square. Over 300 entered the competition and the winning design will be unveiled this autumn.
Richard Potter, Property Services Director, Goodman said: “We were thrilled that the park was included in the judge’s tour. Much care and attention is put into maintaining the grounds and its inclusion is a ringing endorsement for the efforts of all those involved in its upkeep. As Allen Moffat of the Bracknell in Bloom committee said, “everyone has been working extremely hard to ensure Bracknell is looking at its ‘bloomin’ best”. We are so pleased that Arlington Square can be a part of this.”
Bracknell is also competing in the best small city category of the RHS Britain in Bloom UK National Finals and judges from the national competition will be visiting the park next week.
Arlington Square is a 22 acre urban business park adjacent to Bracknell town centre. Its location offers access to the town centre and railway station within five minutes’ walk and the M4 within less than five minutes’ drive.
Originally designed to reflect the proportions of Mayfair's St James Square, the park has been extensively landscaped to provide an environment of unrivalled quality. The park has the ability to accommodate requirements from 4,449 sq ft with purpose built opportunities of up to 75,000 sq ft available.
