“Barker Gate Rest Garden has existed as a public green space since 1953, but has been in need of rejuvenation for a number of years. Working alongside Nottingham City Council and with the invaluable help of both Clegg Construction and Maber Architects, we will be creating a new pocket park in the space, which is great news for the Creative Quarter and Nottingham city centre as a whole.””
