ADW wins cpre gloucestershire award

Walled Garden Project, Museum in the Park, Stratford Park, Stroud

A new garden and learning centre has been created within the historic walled garden, with community and volunteer involvement throughout. The garden is fully accessible for people with disabilities.  

The Pavilion, a glass-fronted, energy-efficient learning centre, opened last year. The tiered garden features winding pathways, a rebuilt 18th century dipping pool, and a performance lawn for community activities, plus a small orchard with rare varieties of Gloucestershire apples and pears.  The Walled Garden was opened to the public October 8th. 

Museum Development Manager Kevin Ward said: “The Award reflects both the success in bringing a derelict outdoor space back to life and doing so with the support and involvement of the local community.”
