Swiss Cottage Open Space (with water jets)

Swiss Cottage Open Space has a water feature with jets to splash about in and a children’s playground.

Description

This new open space was created as part of the development of the Swiss Cottage library and leisure centre.

At the park’s heart is a water feature intended for play as well as visual drama. Jets set at thirty-degree angles emit 15 metre-long streams of water arcing over the rectangular basin. In addition, a thin sheet of water emerges from grilles set into the paving at the fountain head and courses down a rectangular, sloping granite plane embedded into grass banks.

The jets are now switched on for Summer 2017!

Behind this water feature is a small children’s playground.
