Alistair Bayford is a landscape architect and a director of The Landscape Group, and Park Manager for the Queen Elizabeth Olympic Park, overseeing its development and maintenance as a public park following the 2012 Olympics.
Here’s a quote from the Olympic Park website ‘Beautiful, vibrant and surprising, Queen Elizabeth Olympic Park is a joy for nature lovers, whether you’re an expert horticulturalist or just looking for somewhere to relax with a picnic. The Park’s 111 acres of open space include gardens full of flowering plants, broad meadows and intricate wetlands.’
Visit the website if you’d like to find out more.
You might also like to read, or re-read if you’ve already seen it, a report of a visit made by members of Worcester Group to the Park in June 2016 in The Hardy Plant Autumn 2016 issue.
These images were taken by Karin Proudfoot when she visited the gardens.
As usual at our lecture meetings there will also be: Plant display – Plant sale – Seed exchange – Book sale – Raffle – Teas
