The Queen's Gardens, Croydon (also known as Town Hall Gardens)9124

Short Description

In the 1960s a modern garden was created adjacent to the new Taberner House. In 1980 the Police Station that adjoined this was vacated and this enabled a new garden to be laid out bringing together the lower Victorian garden and upper Taberner House garden. Renamed The Queen's Gardens, they were opened by the Queen on 21 June 1983 for the Borough Centenary. The lower garden retains its Victorian character with carpet bedding and planting while the upper garden has a central fountain and pool and more geometric lines.
