The Meadow is an important pedestrian link which connects Elephant & Castle station to the center of the mixed-use development in Elephant Park. It forms part of the wider urban regeneration and was developed for Lendlease in collaboration with B|D Landscape Architects.

Designed to capture the imagination of all ages, this bio-diverse scheme is brought to life through sculpture, natural play and places to rest. It’s a meanwhile space that aims to educate and engage users on the importance of urban pollinators. B|D Landscape Architects designed the pocket park to create a playful wildflower tapestry, with a life-size willow woven elephant and towering tulips.

At night, the space is transformed by glowing light installations that mark the entrance to the park. About 2 meters pieces of LED Linear's VENUS TV in 2.500 Kelvin were placed into metal channels which were then recessed into routed channels within tilted wooden landforms created from site-reclaimed timber.
