King Henry’s Walk Garden is a beautiful community garden, off King Henry’s Walk in Islington, which opened at the end of 2007.
Run by volunteers, with support from Islington Council, the garden contains growing plots for cultivation by local residents, where the use of organic gardening methods helps to promote a diversity of plants and wildlife, and a full programme of education and events engages the whole community.
It is open to the public on Saturdays between 12pm and 4pm, and, from May to September, also on Sundays between 12pm and 4pm. The garden will not open on the two Saturdays closest to Christmas and New Year.
The garden is run by volunteers – the Friends of King Henry’s Walk Garden (registered charity 1173019).
Please note that dogs other than registered assistance dogs are not allowed in the garden, and children under 16 must be accompanied by an adult.
