London, England, Greater London

Brief Description

York Gardens is a large enclosed area of mown amenity grass, scattered trees, rose beds and several semi-natural planted areas, visually divided by several buildings in the centre.

History

York Gardens was created in 1972 in order to provide recreational facilities for residents of new housing built in the 1960s replacing slums in areas such as Kambala Road. York Road is named for the Archbishops of York who had a palace next to the Thames at Battersea. It was also known as Pickpocket Lane. The riverside area had much industrial use with businesses such as Prices candles.
