The Phoenix Garden
21 Stacey Street
The Garden is not a public park, but is privately managed by volunteers as a community garden and an environmental space. It is the last surviving Covent Garden community garden. The Phoenix Garden is a registered charity (formerly Covent Garden Open Spaces Association). The garden is one of the few green spaces in the area and not only provides people with peaceful retreat from the city, but also essential habitat for urban wildlife. We garden using environmentally friendly and sustainable practices - recycling all our green waste onsite, growing the 'right' plants for the conditions, building insect friendly log stacks and rubble heaps - and is designed to feel like a patch of countryside dropped into the centre of town. We feed the birds year round and are visited regularly by range of species. The garden is home to a population of frogs and the pond is a magnet in springtime for parents and children who love the West End's only frogs.
The Phoenix Garden is a community garden and registered charity, managed by volunteers, set up to provide a green retreat from the stresses of London's West End and a vital habitat for urban wildlife.
The garden is maintained using sustainable techniques and an innovative approach to wildlife gardening. We create many different habitats to encourage as many species as we can.
The charity also provides a garden advice resource to local community groups and organises a wide range of garden events through the year.
We welcome all visitors who respect our garden and are open every day of the year.
