Improvements to the Red Lion Square Gardens in Bloomsbury
One of Camden’s best-loved and historic squares has recently benefited from a range of improvements undertaken by Camden Council.
Originally laid out in 1698 and taking its name from a famous local inn, The Red Lyon Inn, Red Lion Square is a secluded green oasis tucked away in the busy area of Holborn.
“Red Lion Square is very popular location with residents, workers and visitors, but a recent public engagement told us that many people wanted a new lease of life for the gardens.
“Funded externally through Section 106 planning obligations, the main focus of our work has been creating a planting scheme that will see the park become a rich habitat for all kinds of a pollinating insects and animals throughout the year.”
Councillor Adam Harrison, Cabinet Member for Improving Camden's Environment
