Thanks for this excellent article by Dorothy from Open Gardens Weekend for her introduction to The World Peace Garden Camden.
Hidden behind the busy Hampstead overground station, the World Peace Garden promotes a powerful philosophy of peace to its neighbourhood. You have to be observant to spot the triangular strip of land whose hypotenuse borders the railway tracks. It’s 42 metres long, tapering from 20 to three metres and straddling the steep slope down to the station. But, once inside, the landscaping, atmosphere and messages draw you into another world.
Friends and Contributors to this project include:
Camden Police, United Nations Association, The Quakers, Heath Hands,
South End GreenAssociation, City of London Corporation Hampstead Heath, Moshe House
Highgate Synagogue, Hampstead Rotary Club, Jewish Cultural Centre London (now JW3)
Mike Wardle, Tony Panayiotou, Nick Evans, Simon Berry, Cchaganbhai Mistry, Pavel Titov and other numerous friends transformed this project from hole to whole.
We’re just beginning…
