Residents and local business transformed this former wasteland next to Hampstead Heath station into an award-winning woodland glade. Recommended by Condé Nast Traveller, this communal space features winding pathways, informal seats for appreciating performances on the stage at the bottom, three small ponds with varied planting and a place to contemplate peace. Tony Panayiotou designed the ponds and soft landscape, while Michael Wardle laid the hard landscaping. Consultants Simon Berry and Andy Darragh remain as advisers. Peace tiles created and designed by Melissa Fairbanks have been donated from Friends of the Peace Garden to greet visitors. The garden won the Time Out Love London Award for Local Culture in Hampstead (2016).
