Susie Bennett, Sales and Marketing Director at Dandara, welcomed the Mayor and other guests to Knights Wood and explained,

This is a really important milestone for all of us involved in the creation of this fantastic development. There is already a strong sense of community at Knights Wood and I am sure the Town Square will help to strengthen this even further. I hope the residents of Knights Wood will thoroughly enjoy this peaceful space.

The Town Square features a stainless steel sculpture created by Will Nash, which stands 2.8 metres tall as the focal point of the long, shallow water feature. The sculpture includes intricate cut-out shapes of leaves, cones and other natural forms collected from the beautiful woodland that surrounds Knights Wood.
