Peterborough Garden Park

Peterborough Garden Park was conceived to meet the needs of a growing number of people interested in gardening and outdoor activities.

This innovative retail and leisure destination combines the attributes of a traditional garden centre and an accessible retail scheme, with a mix of lifestyle retailers.

There is something for everyone.

The defining architecture of the project is in the dramatic main garden centre building which has taken its influence from glass houses such as those at Kew and Wisley and features a ‘Crystal Palace’ glass atrium.

The Park will touch the lives of many hundreds of thousands of people.

With this in mind, great attention to detail has been put into the design which incorporates generous public spaces, cedar shingled covered walkways, display gardens, and a children’s play area .

A delightful place to spend time.

Peterborough Garden Park is the premier garden centre in the UK offering a retail and leisure experience all year round.

Set against a backdrop of generous landscaping, this is a special place to visit with something for everyone, providing a day out for the whole family and a major new retail destination and meeting spot for the Greater Peterborough area.

As part of the Park’s strive for excellence a programme of engagement and support for those in the community that surrounds it has been established.

In forming a strategy to offer leadership and support to the local community, the priorities have been informed by the strategic priorities of Peterborough City Council.

The Park is also committed to keeping sustainability at the heart of the enterprise.

The help of environmental charity Peterborough Environment City Trust has been enlisted.

Their Chief Executive, Hugh Cripps, said:- “Peterborough Garden Park has massive potential not only to be a key shopping destination for Peterborough and the surrounding area, but also to be an asset for Peterborough’s aspiration to create the UK’s Environment Capital.”

As part of its contribution the Park has incorporated green innovations such as rainwater harvesting, stringent environmental policies for all retailers, and excellent waste management systems.

Come and enjoy all the special things the Park has to offer: Van Hage’s ‘Crystal Palace’ garden retail experience, a wide range of complementary shops, three cafes, outdoor seating, display gardens, Wisdom Wood the Children’s Tile Project – a celebration of local children – also tranquil places to sit and ponder.

And for the younger ones , the Children’s Play Area and Pirate Playboat set against the backdrop of colourful panels painted by young local artists.

The Van Hage Kids Zone is the perfect place to relax with your children and meet up with friends while enjoying a coffee or snack knowing your children can play in a safe, secure and fun environment.

We hope you have a great day out!
