The half-hectare site was bequeathed to the London Borough of Bromley (LBB) in the 1970s. In 2011, The Conservation Volunteers worked with LBB to establish a 'Green Gym' on the neglected site, and since 2013 the Friends of Winsford Gardens (Penge Green Gym Community Group) have worked tirelessly to transform the gardens into an attractive community space.

Original features include formal rose beds, mature trees and lawns; the 'Friends' have created sustainable food growing areas, increased wildlife habitats (eg bog garden, wildflower meadows, native hedgerows) and encouraged the local community to take time-out in the park, creating natural seating areas and a children's play area.

Capital Growth garden: 1187
