ACME celebrates the official opening of the Haydon Gardens with the Aldgate Community Garden Club! Lady Mayoress of the City of London, Elisabeth Mainelli, inaugurated The Haydon Gardens which is run by the Aldgate Community Garden Club.

Haydon Gardens is a generous new green heart to the Minories development. Designed by Spacehub, it comprises of a tranquil planted courtyard crafted with high-quality granite and Yorkstone materials—synonymous with the City of London—and are bordered with open lawn areas and children’s play space. The gardens feature diverse native and ornamental planting, with 24 new trees, including beautiful specimens of sweet flowering cherry, grey alder and rowan. A new access route to Aldgate High Street has been integrated within the landscape for the neighbours in the Guinness Trust Estate. This route overcomes challenging topography and simultaneously creates a dramatic woodland garden environment. Importantly, the area provides dedicated growing space for the green-thumbed Aldgate Community Garden Club!
