In 2022 we completed the resin bound surfacing works for walkways at Mayfield Park in Manchester. The creation of the first city centre public park in one hundred years has been designed to offer open space and increased biodiversity through a sequence of informal areas meandering through to activity areas, floodable meadows and quieter spaces for escape and contemplation. The new park covers an area of 6.5 acres of a former industrial site and includes 140 new trees, planting, and sustainable irrigation re-using water from the original Victorian wells.

Appointed by main contractor P.P. O’Connor we installed over 800sqm of BBA approved Addaset resin bound permeable paving for walking, running, and cycling routes through the park. A porous Addaset Hazelnut blend was selected to offer a natural looking paving.

Addaset provides a low maintenance natural aggregate surface with excellent porosity to ensure that the pathways are accessible in all weathers and seasons. The seamless paving offers slip resistant pathways between the park areas, bordering the river Medlock in places.

Work was carried out in multiple phases over a 12-week period starting in April 2022.

The construction process on this project has benefited from the recycling and reusing of materials including bricks and steel beams for a positive environmental impact on this area of regeneration of the city of Manchester. The river Medlock meandering through the site includes the construction of a pedestrian footbridge reusing a former culvert. It is hoped that the re-use of materials and planting of trees will save hundreds of tonnes of C02.

Mayfield Park is now complete and open to the public.
