Maintaining and developing the park is an ongoing initiative for the council and the site is currently the subject of a five year interpretive strategy. One of Coventry City Council’s main aims is to bring Coombe Country Park’s 1774 landscape, originally designed by renowned English landscape architect Capability Brown, to life for visitors. The council hope to achieve this through the provision of informative and educational interpretation, designed to help visitors understand their locality and the sensitivities and importance thereof.
Having worked with Coventry City Council and Coombe Country Park since 1995, Fitzpatrick Woolmer has established a long-standing relationship gaining an in-depth understanding of the site’s interpretive needs. By working with one trusted provider, Coombe Country Park has benefited from consistency of creative style and signage throughout the site.
Fitzpatrick Woolmer’s latest Coombe Country Park project involved the development of signage and interpretation as part of a project to restore the site’s historic Deer Park. To fit in with the style and heritage of the site, signs including a Musketeer™ as well as multiple wall-mounted display frames were manufactured in oak. Creative services including watercolour illustrative mapping, interpretation design for eight panels and a range of A5 watercolour pictorials were provided by our creative mapping and interpretation design division, Fitzpatrick Woolmer Creative.
