Greater London, England, Greater London

Brief Description

Features of Crabtree Fields include a pergola walk and a children's play area.

History

This area suffered bomb damage during World War 2 and as a result the former townscape of Fitzrovia changed in post-war rebuilding. Crabtree Fields was laid out in 1985 by the GLC replacing a former car park on an empty bomb-site. The public gardens recall the old name of the area in the early-18th century when it was a meadow known as Crab Tree Field. It was owned by the wife of carpenter John Goodge after whom Goodge Street is named.
