Bigge Park is a long-established recreational hub in the heart of Liverpool, and has played host to many community activities since the late nineteenth century.
In 2018, the Liverpool City Council implemented an extensive redevelopment of the park precinct, with the intention to improve the existing facilities for public use. New amenities such as a free water play area, an outdoor gymnasium, an alfresco cafe and outdoor dining areas were introduced.
The north-eastern corner of the park required a new section of stairs to bridge the level gap between the park and footpath, opening up pedestrian access to the park. Anston’s Granite Mimosa mix, paired with Latham nosing in Sparkling Black, was selected for the production of several concrete stair treads, some rectilinear and some curved, used to create the curving stairway.
