Centenary Riverside Park Resource Centre

Rotherham Borough Council have implemented flood defence measures that now protects an area of more than
30 Ha of flood plain, allowing protection for 70 businesses and enabling new developments to take place.

In 2009, The Sheffield Wildlife Trust created the Centenary Riverside Wetland Park, an Award Winning place
for wildlife to thrive and a place to commemorate local history and industry.

The options developed take their conceptual starting point from a combination of the following:

• Industrial heritage of surrounding area
• A celebration of the regeneration of this previously contaminated and unused site
• Natural materials sourced from locality e.g. timber coppiced from local woodland
• Scale and spatial qualities of the context
