Arnold Circus is a unique garden and heritage asset in the 1890s Boundary Street Estate in east London. Designed as the centrepiece of Britain's first publicly funded social housing scheme, and  intended to improve public health, promote exercise and be a ‘stage’ for the local community, it declined over the years.

Today the Circus is beautiful again, restored and maintained by the Friends of Arnold Circus in partnership with Tower Hamlets. Major regeneration in 2010, led by LDA Design, used careful research and meticulous work to balance restoration and sustainability resulting in colourful planting, improved biodiversity, a bandstand with handmade roofing tiles, historic railings, new seating, and a rainwater-harvesting system with underground storage.
