The grounds have in recent years been enhanced with colourful signage and floral displays with low maintenance but attractive planting schemes. There are ornamental gardens at the entrance, with clipped hedges in geometric patterns.
Eckington Gardens is originally the name of the residential street, in an area that suffered bomb damage in World War 2 and became derelict. In 1974, the area was declared as unfit and in an uninhabitable state by LB Lewisham, and site clearance was proposed. In 1980 Swift contractors submitted a bid for works to lay out and equip Eckington Gardens and extend the space. By 1981 the work was complete and it became the Eckington Gardens Park.
