West Kensington park reopens after refurbishment works by The Landscape Group

A small West Kensington park has re-opened to the public after refurbishment works have been completed by The Landscape Group (TLG). This has given this charming and much-loved green space a new lease of life just in time for spring.

Gwendwr Gardens opened in 1949 after being gifted to what was then Fulham Council by the Gunter Estate as a memorial to those residents from West Kensington who died in the bombings of the Second World War.

The gardens have remained largely in the same form as when they first opened, with many original features. In recent years though, trees and shrubs had become overgrown and some of the paving had become very uneven.

As part of the renovation works, overgrown foliage was cut back, new shrubs and woodlands plants introduced, and uneven and broken paving levelled and restored. All in all giving the charming and much-loved green space a new lease of life for future generations to enjoy.

The gardens originally had a great deal of horticultural interest and new planting has made the most of the different growing conditions within the site, to provide colour and interest throughout the year. The focal point is the sheltered sunken garden, planted with a mix of sun-loving shrubs and herbaceous plants, and the native woodland plants in the shady areas will help to boost biodiversity.
