Our vision is to create a garden for the community at the heart of the scheme, providing respite from the busy Walworth Road and bringing people together.

Planting has been designed to create a woodland feel and incorporates informal play amongst the planting.

It is also clear that the safety, security and upkeep of this space is of up-most importance to people locally. We have put a number of measures in place to ensure it is safe, secure and well-maintained:
