Gorgeous Gardens of Coin Street

Our friends at Coin Street Community Builders would like your views on their gardens
Valerie Beirne
Bankside Urban Forest Manager

The gardens and open spaces on the Coin Street site are important and provide valuable leisure, recreation and relaxation opportunities for residents, visitors and people working in the area.  Coin Street Community Builders (CSCB), the social enterprise and development trust which owns and manages the Bernie Spain Gardens and the Riverside Walkway (between Oxo Tower Wharf and National Theatre), is committed to improving the visual appearance of these areas and ensuring they continue to be of value for this and future generations.

Coin Street Community Builders are about to embark on a programme which will:

•           Deliver improvements to the way the spaces are maintained and how they work with our contractors to achieve this

•           Provide meaningful opportunities for the community to get more involved and influence how the gardens are managed

•           Explore opportunities to create a legacy which reflects how unique our community on the South Bank and Bankside is.

They're keen to capture as many peoples' views as possible, from local residents, students and workers. They've devised a short questionnaire, if you have a few minutes please take the time to fill it in, and pass the link on to friends or neighbours you think might be interested - here’s the link.  For further information, contact Laura Reynolds, Community Projects Manager, e-mail//L.Reynolds [at]"> L.Reynolds [at]
