An unused and unattractive sunken garden in Hyson Green was known for being a 'no-go' area by local people. It was an area which attracted crime, vandalism and graffiti and one which has suffered neglect over recent years.
Groundwork developed the scheme and raised the garden to ground level to create a safer environment. The area was given a new lease of life with inspiring landscaping, a new seating area, and the installation of community artwork which was created from images of local residents.
The new garden has improved the local environment for both residents and visitors and has created an inviting and welcoming outdoor space.
