Promenade Park is a Victorian riverfront park located in the historic maritime town of Maldon in Essex. Sitting on the Blackwater estuary alongside the River Chelmer, the park contains an ornamental lake, woodland walk and adventure play areas for children. There are also boat tours, a splash park, skateboarding facility, BMX track, which all make Promenade Park very popular with families.
Fitzpatrick Woolmer was approached by Maldon District Council, who needed new entrance signage for Promenade Park. The project brief was for the new signage to look like a boat in order to reflect the park's heritage and the River Chelmer's association with the Thames sailing barge.
The new entrance signage is manufactured from hardwood iroko with stainless steel uprights. The signs were profiled and detailed on the company's CNC-controlled router.
The full-colour printed sails were finished in a DuoGuard™ anti-graffiti coating to ensure maximum vandal resistance and lightfastness.
Fitzpatrick Woolmer provided a full service for the project, from manufacture through to installation.
