In 1889, Sir Sydney Waterlow gave his gardens to the people of London as 'gardens for the gardenless'. In 2011, the original site of the kitchen garden was restored and re-opened as a community resource for growing vegetables, fruit, herbs and flowers.

Surrounded by yew hedges, the garden feels like a 'secret' part of Waterlow Park. A place for quiet retreat at times, at others a busy place for active gardeners.

The design of the garden was planned by a team from Camden parks department, volunteers from TCV, and the Friends of Waterlow Park. There are 10 raised beds, each one managed and cultivated by a different local organisation. These include a primary school, a children's centre and local groups, including the Friends.

The park itself offers stunning views over London and many other natural delights.
