Initially called Thornhill Gardens, this site contains some fine mature plane trees and has perimeter shrub planting, rose beds and asphalt paths, and a war memorial in the form of an austere cross.
Thornhill Road Gardens is a site acquired by Islington Vestry in 1889, later maintained by Islington Borough Council. The neighbouring Malvern Terrace had been built as part of the Thornhill Estate. Before housing encroached, much of the area was nursery grounds.
