The garden has been created by the residents of the Albert Triangle (Gladstone Street and Colnbrook Street) from a derelict building site. The residents purchased a long lease on the site from Southwark Council and now use the garden as the focus for all major community activities. It is well stocked with mature shrubs and trees - a cherry, a magnolia and two liquidambars. It is a sunken garden, having been created at the basement level of the demolished houses. Wide, shallow steps lead down to it from street level. It is maintained by the residents and is the heart of the community.
