The Garden

A peaceful square framed by trees in the heart of residential Islington. Features include a rose bed and flowerbeds. A woodland planting scheme is at the heart of the square.

The hut in the square is opened regularly on Tuesday afternoons and Saturday mornings by volunteers so that visitors and residents can meet up and enjoy some tea and coffee. There are regular gardening sessions too, which help bring people of all ages together to create a greener square.
