Floating Paradise Gardens of London

Posted by on in News & Views

NewYorkHighLineParkThe floating paradise garden of London – yes you read correctly. It seems that Joanna Lumley has been working tirelessly for over 15 years to make this concept a reality. She has recently helped launch a trust to oversee the UK's first garden bridge. Aimed at welcoming tourists and cheering commuters on their daily travels, this will be the first pedestrian bridge of its kind. It could well be our version of the New York Highline (pictured here) – a mile long park built on the lines of a former train line.

The project has recently entered its first official planning stage – public consultation, Joanna says the bridge is to "be seen as a gift to the people of London from themselves for generations to come". As such, there is a definite flavour of not wanting corporate sponsorship; all parties involved so far believe that big organisations will offer donations with strings attached. Some large organisations have already offered to plough in millions of pounds into the project and they have been rejected. Fundraising for this project will be a huge ask, by all accounts a very worthwhile scheme and an opportunity for the UK to flex its horticultural muscles once again.
