Portraits of Pocket Parks
In 2012, the Mayor of London launched a bold initiative to create 100 new ‘Pocket Parks’ across the city.
The aim was to create small oases of tranquillity in areas of underused or unloved land.
These peaceful pockets would offer relief from the hustle and bustle of London. They’d also encourage people to be proud of where they live. Finally, they’d show how improving small local spaces can really help create more liveable neighbourhoods.
Our new exhibition shares the stories and experiences of 11 of the people who help create the 100 Pocket Parks, and those who now enjoy these new spaces.
The exhibition will be held on the lower ground floor of the City Hall.
