Greater London, England, Greater London

Brief Description

Supported by volunteers and a dedicated staff team, the gardens now have various landscapes, including a wooded area and wildlife garden, a quiet scented courtyard and a skate bowl. The Playhut was built to provide a safe, stimulating play and learning environment. Beyond Golborne Road the path meanders along the Grand Union Canal.

History

Meanwhile Gardens was set up as community garden in 1976 on former derelict land along the Grand Union Canal. Sculptor Jamie McCullough approached Westminster City Council, within whose boundaries the site then was, for permission to turn it into a park. Temporary permission was granted, which led to the garden's name.
