Many parks and gardens in London close when it is dark and the intention with the Garden Bridge is to keep it open to coincide with the greatest demand for use. 

Decisions regarding operation and maintenance are a matter for the Garden Bridge Trust, which took this decision in consultation with the two local authorities.
