The Phoenix Garden in London’s West End provides a peaceful green retreat for local residents, workers and tourists and is a haven for a wide range of urban wildlife. Created by local volunteers in 1984, this is the last of the Covent Garden community gardens. It demonstrates what can be achieved with ingenuity upon a bedrock of West End rubble. Plants are chosen to suit difficult growing conditions and to support a wide range of wildlife species. The Phoenix Garden opens daily and is a registered charity, managed by an enthusiastic team of volunteers and funded through donations and grants. Awards received include Natur Im Garten ecological garden accreditation in 2016, and a Camden Design Award in 2017 for a new community building.
