  1. 1. Proposal 4 by Chia Keh Chian Introduction Relaxant Park is a high quality diversified park, recreation and open space system that provides for all age and interest groups. It allows you to do both slow down or speed up. Chill out on its manicured lawns and have a family picnic; a brief respite from the work week rush. Or get your heart racing by hitting its jogging paths with sprightly vigour. With the idyllic man-made lake at its centre, Relaxant Park truly represents an ideal getaway from the tribulations of the busy life. Rationale & Client Evaluation After carrying out the site visit and SWOT analysis, we discovered the strength, weakness, opportunity and threats of this site. We also study about the facilities nearby and the potential of the site. There are a lot of residential areas surrounding this location, but there is no main recreation area for the residents to relax, have gathering and meet new people. Therefore, I decided to transform this empty land to a park which focuses on the purpose to be a recreation area.
  2. 2. Objective 1. Provide a system of neighbourhood and community parks that are within walking distance of residents. 2. To create open space as a balance to man-made development. 3. To preserve and protect areas of important environmental consideration, and to incorporate such areas into the park and recreation system. 4. To provide facilities for both passive and active recreation to meet the needs of all residents living nearby. 5. Provide parks with activities for all age groups and abilities, equally distributed throughout the community. 6. Develop athletic facilities that meet the highest quality competitive playing standards and requirements for all age groups, skill levels, and recreational interests. 7. Develop new multi-use facilities to increase flexibility of use for new activities. 8. Provide operation and maintenance to insure safe, serviceable, and functional parks and facilities. 9. Promote healthy physical and mental well-being. 10. Design and develop facilities that are sustainable, accessible, safe and easy to maintain with life-cycle features that account for long term costs and benefits.
  3. 3. Projects Benefits There are a lot of benefits a park can bring, including community benefits, health benefits, economic benefits and environmental benefits. COMMUNITY BENEFITS: Parks and Recreation sources give communities an important identity. Well-maintained, accessible parks and recreation facilities are key elements of safe, strong, family-friendly communities. Citizens qualities of life improve when they engaged with their parks and recreation systems. Community recreation reduces depression, alienation, loneliness, and anti-social behaviour. Parks and recreation provide opportunities that encourage citizens to get involved in their communities as volunteers, stewards, advocates and students. HEALTH BENEFITS: Access to parks and recreation facilities leads to healthy lifestyles for people of all ages. Strong evidence shows that when people go to parks, they exercise more. Every time sedentary people walk a mile, they add 21 minutes to their life. On average, every hour they spend exercising increases their life expectancy by two hours. Exercise increases the brains capacity for learning and developing skills. Physical activities such as jogging, wall climbing and skating can improve mental health effectively. ECONOMIC BENEFITS: Parks enhance property values, contribute to healthy and productive workforces and help attract and retain businesses. Parks and recreation facilities make communities desirable places to live, work, play and visit.
  4. 4. Parks and recreation services motivate business relocation and expansion in the community. In a national public opinions survey, 57% of respondents said that if they were in the market to buy a new home, they would be more likely to select a home if it was close to parks and open space. ENVIRONMENTAL BENEFITS: Parks, open spaces and trails play a key role in preserving water and air quality, reducing congestion and protecting wildlife. Through the provision of parks, open spaces and protected natural environment, recreation can contribute to the environmental health of our communities. Green plants help to beautify the area and purify the air by absorbing carbon dioxide and release oxygen. Trail and pathway systems save energy and protect air quality by encouraging non-motorized transportation.
  5. 5. Project Concept 1. Close to nature The main concept of this project focuses on nature and greenery in the site. There are trees, shrubs, plants and grass in the park. Tall plants surrounding Relaxant Park act as vertical screen, screening out unwanted views and provide a serene, healthy, friendly and natural environment for residents and visitors. They can take a leisurely walk and enjoy the fresh air and the great outdoors with its captivating vistas. 2. Relaxing and refreshing space Relaxant Park provides a relaxing and comfortable space for people to release stress and smooth their daily problems of increasingly busy lives and crowded living sites. It features a picturesque man-made lake, a childrens playground complete with child-proof play equipment, park benches, outdoor BBQ area and a foot-massaging pathway to complete the whole relaxing experience.
  6. 6. 3. Tranquillity Relaxant Park is a well-designed tranquil retreats and meditative park. The quiet environment comforts mind and spirit, encourages residents and visitors to unwind and relax. It also provides an ideal open space for meditation and yoga. Name This park is named as Relaxant Park. Relaxant is defined as something that helps to relax in English, it also brings the meaning of relax in Latin.

  10. 10. Entrance Family area Playground Benches Tasteful Welcoming Entrances Entrance is the first time people will see when they go to a place. In my proposal, a wooden arbor will be used as an inviting entrance to Relaxant Park, providing a pleasing view from exterior. The entrances evergreen plantings are gracious and welcoming, directing the visitors to the desired area. Inclusive play space In family area, there will be a childrens playground complete with child-proof play equipment, including slides, see saw, swings and spring rides. With those equipments and safe surfacing, the playground allows children to have fun, learn and develop social skills, imagination and self-care skills without causing worries among parents. Iconic park benches A lot of benches will be located in everywhere of the park for visitors to rest. Visitors are encouraged to sit and slow down the journey and aspire strollers to focus on the moment, then enjoy views discovered around the park.
  11. 11. Natural area Foot-massaging pathway Lush greenery I also proposed a dry landscape area in this park, consisting only of trees, stones, raked gravel or sand and moss. They are meant to foster contemplation, yoga and meditation. Green plants purify the air by absorbing carbon dioxide and release oxygen, improving the quality of air and reduce air pollution. | Path to good health Foot-massaging pathway is provided in my proposed park, it is constructed based on the principles of reflexology, which is an ancient Asian therapy that links health and well-being to specific points on the feet, ears and hand. Using the foot as a guide to overall health, pressure is applied to areas that correspond to vital organs, glands, nerves and muscles. This pathway is able to improve residents and visitors life quality because it offers more than relaxation; it is also a type of self-care which does not require a lot of time.
  12. 12. Open Play Space Amphitheatre Active Area Mini skate park Climbing Wall An open-air place used for outdoor events, performances, sports and entertainment is include in my proposal. It provides a platform to show residents talents and bring people together. Transcend your limits! A dream come true for skateboarders, a purpose- built recreational environment made to provide excellent places to recreate, socialize and improve their skills. Unlike the big skate park, this mini skate park only contain half-pipe and quarter pipe. They are designed specifically to provide unique challenges to users. As one of the worlds fastest growing mainstream sporting activities, an artificially constructed wall with grips for feet and hand is built in this park. It is not just a sport for adrenaline junkies, with good instruction and modern safety equipment, it is safe and enjoyable for anyone of any age to climb at their own comfort and ability level.
  13. 13. Lawn area/Open space Outdoor BBQ Area Picnic area Pavilion I plan to have a round deck surround barbecue pit in my park. It is available for use on first-come, first-served basis, or a reservation can be made. It is a perfect location for events such as birthday parties and social gatherings. There will also be picnic area in my proposed park. Family picnic offers considerable benefits for the health of the individual and as well as a bonding experience for the family. It is a great stress buster as it h
