Are we talking about the site on the corner of Lower Road and Jamaica Road
This is the Albins Memorial Garden - AFAIK for the ashes of people not pets
IMHO, it is appallingly designed - in particular the new wall inside the railings on the road side. IIRC It is less of a blot seen from inside the park, because there is a hedge.
What I don't know is whether Albins bought the site from Southwark or have always owned it - did they just accept money when the roundabout was rejigged for railings to match the realigned park railings?
