Frendsbury Gardens is a community garden and park nestled between Frendsbury Road, Pincott Place, Billingsford Close, Hainford Close and Coston Walk in Brockley, within the borough of Lewisham in south-east London. Frendsbury used to be a wasteland stuffed with fly-tipped rubbish. Local residents, fed up with the situation, got together and came up with a plan for a community garden. With support from Lewisham Council, lottery funding and other support a beautiful oasis of nature was created.
Frendsbury Gardens is used by local people as a space to be, a place to learn and play or even just as a shortcut on a journey.
