The Garden

Volunteers transformed this former wasteland next to Hampstead Heath station into an award-winning woodland glade. Recommended by Condé Nast Traveller, this communal space features winding pathways, informal seating around a stage, three small ponds with varied planting, and space to contemplate peace. Tony Panayiotou designed the ponds and soft landscape; Michael Wardle created the hard landscaping. Peace Tiles created and designed by Melissa Fairbanks were donated by the Friends of Peace Garden, to greet visitors. The World Peace Garden won the Time Out Love London Award for Local Culture in Hampstead in 2016.

Gardeners: Keiko, Hugh, Laurence, Miki, Mer
