The towpath on the Grand Union Canal, between Great Western Road and Harrow Road is overshadowed by the A40 Westway along a stretch around 100m long. The space is sad and unloved, and feels cold and threatening. We propose to improve it by introducing facilities for the local community which will generate regular activity in the area.
We asked local residents, canal boaters, joggers, young adults, families with young children and towpath users what they would like to see there. The photographs of their fantastic suggestions will be displayed throughout June in the Great Western Studios as part of the London Festival of Architecture. The most popular ideas proposed were:
- an outdoor exercise for all ages
- a playground
- to install a tap for the canal boaters
We believe that these facilities will transform this area to make it a destination. The varied facilities will benefit a large number of people and provide an opportunity to bring together the local community.
