Milton Keynes is growing and maturing to meet the needs of its communities and visitors. One element yet to be developed is a central gathering place for celebration, contemplation and commemoration. MK Rose is the creative and engaging response to this need.
Designed by internationally renowned artist Gordon Young it is a vast and impressive civic space to be located in Campbell Park. The circular design is inspired by the original city centre design principals and the mathematical properties of a flower.
MK Rose includes a calendar of days represented by over 100 granite pillars. These pillars will be inscribed with dates and events which are important to you and Milton Keynes, and this is where we need your ideas. Through workshops we hope to identify key dates that you believe should be part of the MK Rose - dates that will engage people for many years in individual and group celebration, contemplation and commemoration.
Workshops date: 28th September - Heritage focus - MK Museum, 10am - 12noon.
MK Rose is a partnership project between the Cenotaph Trust and Milton Keynes Parks Trust with support from Milton Keynes Council.
