In 1984, local residents started to grow vegetables on a 1.5-acre plot of wasteland. This signalled the beginning of the Harleyford Road Community Garden. Apart from a few existing trees, the whole garden has been created. The plot is divided into several areas, including a wildlife area, pond and a playground and is maintained by residents. Recent additions include a mosaic wall, extended mosaic paths and new benches. A secret passage links the Garden with Bonnington Square Community Garden.
