BURRS COUNTRY PARK
Burrs Country Park lies on the River Irwell covering an area of 36 hectares of scenic countryside, one mile north west of Bury town centre. 

Since 2005, Burrs has continualy held The Green Flag Award.

The park owes part of its existence to Bury's industrial past, many remnants of which still exist today.

Originally a home to a Steam powered Mill and housing for its many workers, Burrs was once at the heart of the Industrial Revolution in the North West.




After the Mill was closed in 1930 the site remained largely unused, until it was Bought by Bury Council in 1986 when work was set about to convert It into aCountry Park for the public to enjoy to vast array of Habitats.




Building on the vector icons used for the parks Map, these icons were also animated for use on the Burrs Country Park App, this was done to highlight the ever changing nature of the park as well as the inspiring nature of the sights found within.

 


Since it was established, great effort was given to not only upheld the Green Flag awarded Nature that surrounds The Old Mill but also add touches of Art and Culture to Juxtapose the Historic Building and groundwork.

Untitled is a large Tree like sculpture made out of welded parts of a modern Steam Compressor.

Whilst Stone Cycle is inspired by Stone Henge with large Triangular Rocks, Each carved with stages of the Water Cycle.




A simple colour scheme of green and blue creates a vivid colour palette perfectly complimenting the surround Landscape.

 


A new map was also commissioned to fit in with the Parks new design as as making the a more concise Navigation experience using one clear map rather than the multiple different design installed throughout the past 35 years.




Centred around the Smartphone camera The Burrs Country Park App uses code scanning as way to link up with signs around the park for Visitors to interact with and in turn learn from.
