Shore Gardens

Shore Gardens is one of Hackney’s smallest green spaces, however it has one of the most interesting pasts. Back in the 1800s the site formed part of the Loddiges Nursery.

The nursery was famed for its plant collections and hothouse and is credited with introducing numerous now common plants to the UK and Europe, including camellia japonica, bambusa nigra, wisteria consequana, azalea calendulacea and rhododendron. There’s more information on the history of the site in the park’s management plan.

Although only small the site today provides a valuable breathing space in the densely populated residential area and is a great place to simply relax.
