Children’s design competition for the Hilltown Park

UPDATE: See entries and ideas here

Deadline 8th of March 2021

Show us how you would transform the Hilltown park into your dream park. For some of you, it may be about building your own special space with big blocks to hang out with your friends, for others it may be a beautiful ice cream van or a special kids cafe with the best hot chocolates to keep you fuelled. You may be more interested in having games like pogo sticks, special swings or go-carts, or perhaps having secret bushes full of fruits to make cocktails…

All materials and colours are allowed for your design, you could use pen and paper, computer design, collage, plasticine models… You can include the whole park or just an area of it. Or you could also just draw a design of something new to go in the park. Its up to you.

We are looking for small and big ideas, originality, creativity, sustainability, colour, functionality, wild ideas…all are welcome!

To take part in the competition you need to be:

  1. 13 years old or under
  2. Live or attend school or nursery in the Coldside/ Maryfield districts or attend to any MAXwell Centre activities.

Send us your name, age and school you attend with up to 3 photos of your design/s, whatever format they are in, to by the 8th of March 2021.

We will select 12 winners and announce them on Friday 12th of March. Each will have a prize bag with games, goodies and growing surprises and their original designs will be exhibited as part of the Hilltown Community Plaza Project, funded by Creative Dundee.

Send us an email if you have any questions, we are looking forward to seeing your lovely designs.
