This delightful garden was created by Octavia Hill in 1887, social reformer and co-founder of the National Trust. Octavia Hill's cottages and community hall overlook the garden, all integral to her vision for better housing, connection to nature and arts for the working poor.

Bankside Open Spaces Trust (BOST) worked with many supporters, to restore this Victorian garden, after degradation after the war. The project included the re-creation of the pond with bridge and fountain, bandstand, new flowerbeds, lawns and benches.

Red Cross Garden is a community garden, managed by BOST, with volunteers helping to maintain the space. Received Gold RHS Small Park 2017 and a Green Flag Award.
