About City Gardens

The City's gardens are managed and maintained by the City Gardens Team, which has its own in house team of gardeners that maintain the horticultural standards and everyday upkeep of the City's green spaces.

In addition to the green spaces themselves, the City Gardens Team also consults on plans and policies that effect the way in which we deliver our services. See our consultations page for more information.


The City Gardens are overseen by a Management Committee consisting of eighteen members known as the Open Spaces, City Gardens and West Ham Park Committee. The Committee was created to act as the overarching policy and strategic body in relation to the activities of the Open Spaces Department. It is responsible for the management of the gardens, churchyards and Open Spaces in the City under the control of the Common Council. It is also responsible for management of Bunhill Fields Burial Ground.
