SITE DETAILS

Grove Gardens Richmond

Summary

Grove Gardens were provided as a secluded public green as part of a cottage housing estate built by the Royal Dutch Shell Company in the 1920s. The small estate was designed along 'garden suburb' principles. The railed gardens are surrounded by mature pine trees, with grass and shrubs, seats and paths. The garden has a bowling green, with two timber pavilions between which is a sculpture of a huntress or goddess with a deer. The garden at one time had a putting green.
