About Meanwhile Gardens Community Association
Meanwhile Gardens Community Association aims to enhance the lives of residents in North Kensington and North Westminster by providing safe and inclusive open air leisure, play, and training and education opportunities in our four-acre community park.
What was once four acres of derelict wasteland is now an oasis in densely populated North Kensington, where there is a recognised lack of green space. Over the past 32 years, local residents have contributed time, skills and energy in many ways, helping to develop the Gardens into a much loved unique public space. Free facilities for the local community include a drop in centre 'The Playhut' for parents and carers with children up to the age of six, a state of the art skate park and a range of festivals and events.
