The Garden

Lexham Gardens is an award-winning one-acre square, which was redesigned and replanted in 1990 after developers were thwarted in their plans to make a car park beneath it. When it reopened in 1991, it won first prize in the All London Garden Square Best Garden. It won three more first prize awards snd has also won the Brighter Kensington and Chelsea Prize nine times. Facilities include a children’s play area and ponds with fountains.
