The Garden

Gloucester Square Residents' Gardens can be found in a tranquil residential square lined with trees, between Haggerston Park and Regent’s Canal, onto which it opens. Gloucester Square was built in 1987 as affordable housing on a former industrial site. In 2009 residents decided to rejuvenate the flowerbeds after years of neglect and now the garden features a small woodland area, a central landscaped sanctuary and two flowerbeds where plants, herbs and vegetables are seamlessly planted within borders. The garden received a Gold award for Best Community Project in Hackney in Bloom (2013) and a Bronze award for Best Community Garden (2014) from the East London Gardening Society.
