Great parks in Camden
St Martin's Gardens
St Martin’s Gardens is situated south east of Camden Town and provides a green haven and recreational space in the midst of the busy urban environment.
The site was previously Camden Town Cemetery before becoming a public park. Tombs and monuments from the old cemetery are still on the site and give the site its character.
The site is owned by the Diocese of London and the local churches are very active in using the site. Members of the local clergy are part of the Friends of St Martin’s Gardens which is very active. Please contact the friends group if you would be interested in getting involved
The park underwent a major restoration in 2005 and is now a well-balanced mix of trees, grassland, shrub beds and wild flower borders. A children’s play area is surrounded by a wild flower meadow.
Our Nature Conservation team work with St Michael's school in the outdoor classroom where the children learn about their environment and Camden's wildlife. They have their own section within the park which they are responsible for looking after.
St Martin's Gardens has once again been awarded a Green Flag in 2010 - deserved national recognition that these gardens are of the highest quality.
