Vauxhall Park rose arbour
Vauxhall Park was opened in 1890 by the Prince of Wales on land that had been bought for property speculation but instead was sold to the Metropolitan Board of Works after public action had sought its preservation. It was one of the first parks to be opened by the newly-formed London County Council. A number of houses originally stood on the site of the park. A prime mover was Octavia Hill, one of the founders of the National Trust. The rose arbour is on the site of one of the two bowling greens - the site of the other is now a lavender garden - see LinkExternal link
