King’s square will provide an inspiring and engaging space for the public to visit and relax, available for events and entertainment as well as outdoor dining and markets. Features in the new square will include sweeping granite seating areas alongside fountains, trees, and atmospheric coloured lighting. The design concept takes inspiration from the Severn bore – a spectacular tidal surge that occurs along the nearby River Severn. It is the first phase and the centre piece of the much larger Forum development – see above – and is a key part in the regeneration of the King’s Quarter part of the city centre.
