The University of Manchester has unveiled plans to turn Brunswick Street into a park—to be named Brunswick Park... the road will be blocked off to traffic and it will be replaced with an area of green public realm.
The park will sit in the heart of campus between the Simon and Williamson buildings. The area will be extensively landscaped and will feature pedestrian paths, cycle lanes, wildflower areas, trees, and benches.
The entire street will be converted and plans show a large circular area in outside the Zochonis, Roscoe, and Simon buildings, which leads to the Oxford Road along a wide paved area.
“Improved pathways” will be provided between Oxford Road and Upper Brook Street for pedestrians and cyclists.
