Formerly owned by the Leighton Estate, Leighton Crescent Gardens is a crescent-shaped area designed in conjunction with the C19th terraces that overlook it, and contains some mature London plane trees.
In the 1920s the garden had a lawn with shrubs and trees but it was later redesigned with a central raised landscape feature of rocks and shrubs and a circular asphalted playground, both no longer extant. A tennis court was incorporated but today the site is predominantly asphalt with some perimeter shrubs and trees.
