 Kennington Park

I hope that you have all seen the new flower garden in Kennington Park. Having recently reopened after a massive refurbishment, the breath taking planting has to be seen. But it's not just the planting, but the pond, paving, seating and entrances, all encourage any visitor to take some time to sit and relax or even take some photos of some fine specimens.  

The friends of Kennington Park have yet again excelled themselves with all their hard work in supporting such a major transformation of the park, please go and see it before winter sets in! 

Please get in touch if you'd like to be part of the gardening team!
