Discover how the old Coplawhill Tramworks has been transformed into a lush green haven, a sanctuary for humans and wildlife alike. A work of art in themselves, the gardens also host art works and artistic activities, alongside their neighbour, the Tramway.
Guided by our Volunteer tour guides you will discover how the site of the old Coplawhill Tramworks was transformed into a lush green haven, a sanctuary from the city bustle for humans and wildlife alike.
As well as a green space the Hidden Gardens are a work of art in themselves, and host art works and artistic activities.
Create your own keepsake card by making creative wax rubbings of textures and materials found in the gardens and take part in Cyanotype sun-printing workshops.
Also taking part during Doors Open Days will be wildlife activities including a Bioblitz, a fun interactive survey of wildlife in the garden. Every discovery made during a Bioblitz is recorded and submitted to local wildlife record centres and the National Biodiversity Network. All the information collected will help to shed light on how wildlife on our land is changing and how best to protect it.
