At the centre of the plaza a puddle water feature with a sculpture has been placed. This provides a focal point for the centre of this space and provides a play feature for children. Seating which is provided by the venue is often arranged around this puddle.

The newly planted groves of trees to the edge of the plaza are planted into the coloured tarmac surface. The planting pits are topped with an angular aggregate mulch, continuing the paved surface to the trunks of the trees. Mature trees which predated this landscape proposal have been incorporated into these proposals. A similar surface treatment has been adopted to that of the newly planted trees.
