|Open Gardens Weekend|
Visit some of London's 'secret' green spaces
Open Garden Squares Weekend takes place across London, this weekend opening over 200 hidden, secret and little-known gardens to the public.
Walpole Park's walled garden will be hosting a variety of activities taking place on Sunday 9th June.
Gardens are located across 27 London boroughs and range from the historic and traditional to the new and experimental, including private gardens, roof gardens, community allotments, urban wildlife and ecology centres, as well as gardens belonging to historic buildings, institutions, restaurants, schools and shops.
Established in 1998, Open Garden Squares Weekend is the London Parks & Gardens Trust’s highest profile event, and seeks to increase knowledge and the appreciation of London’s green, urban and open space network. The Weekend is presented in association with The National Trust which is helping to make the city's hidden green spaces accessible to as many people as possible.
Many gardens taking part in Open Garden Squares Weekend host family-friendly entertainment, art activities, live music and plant swops as well as food and drink events.
One ticket gains access to all Open Garden Squares Weekend gardens for both Saturday 8 and Sunday 9 June.
An advance weekend ticket is just £10 (including fees/p&p) available from www.opensquares.org. A ticket bought over the weekend itself is £12. National Trust Members go half price. Children under 12 go free.
