The Hidden Gardens

Built 2003
25a Albert Drive Albert Drive Glasgow
G41 2PE

The Hidden Gardens is a beautiful outdoor space, developed in 2003 on the site of the former Coplawhill Tramworks in Pollokshields. Through the development of this derelict inaccessible space, The Hidden Gardens has become a beautiful, safe greenspace, open to all. It is a garden rich in art & design that brings people of all backgrounds together to create a sense of community through our volunteering programme where volunteers are fundamental to the maintenance of the gardens and also support our vibrant programme of arts, nature , health & wellbeing activities and events. The Hidden Gardens is a place where people live, play, learn, participate and celebrate together in peace, where people and nature thrive side by side and discover how we can all make changes to create more sustainable communities.
