Blackfriars Bridge Garden was referred to as a public garden maintained by the Corporation of London by the 1920s. Blackfriars Underpass consists of a publicly accessibly landscaped strip along the river by the pedestrian underpass, as well as areas of grass and flowerbeds at the bridgehead that are essentially traffic islands, a pleasant contrast from the busy road. Near the Underpass is a commemorative stone.
The current landscaping at Blackfriars Bridge dates from the 1960s when Blackfriars Underpass was opened and adopted as public open space under the Blackfriars Bridgehead Act.
