Just as Croydon is a gateway to central London, so Ruskin Square has been designed as the new gateway to Croydon.
The concept behind Ruskin Square promises to create a superb environment and an important new South London landmark. A footbridge links it to the upgraded East Croydon railway station just a minute away and a direct route is planned from here, through the central business district, to the new £1 billion shopping and leisure centre.
The square itself will be a big urban space, with contemporary street furniture, paved and planted with shrubs and trees to create an attractive meeting, greeting and eating place. Altogether, this will be one of South London’s most desirable neighbourhoods.
