OPT was gifted this property in 2007 by Mr John and Mrs Georgina Simons. Previously the land had been a garden to their boat mooring on the Thames, opposite Rose Island.
On acquisition, the Trust arranged for the removal of fallen and dead trees and the construction of a boardwalk from the top of the garden sloping gently down to the river. Beautiful views of the Thames and the Trust's river meadows at Kennington can be admired. There is now public access, an interpretation board and a seat at the top of the garden.
