Donate a tree to the Horniman Gardens
The redevelopment of the Horniman Gardens is now reaching the final stages and we expect it to be completed in late spring 2012. New ramps and paving has improved access to the Sunken Garden, the historic bandstand has been restored to its elegant 1909 condition with new glass screens, and the Learning and Community building – the Gardens Pavilion - is now complete.
We are now moving onto the planting stage and as the new areas begin to take shape, we are able to offer certain items for “naming” in return for a donation. You can donate a tree or picnic bench in memory of a loved one, in celebration of a marriage or simply to mark many happy years spent in the Museum and Gardens.
There are a number of items and areas you can ‘donate’. Included in the cost of these items is a discreet plaque acknowledging your support.
There are twelve new picnic benches located on the Bandstand Terrace. They cost £500 each to donate.
Eight plane trees are available on the Bandstand Terrace, which will provide shade on hot summer days. They cost £1200 each to donate.
A ‘Sound Corner’ beside the Bandstand Terrace features five sculptural musical instruments. A full list of the instruments and the costs to donate them are on our website.
More items will become available in the coming months so do keep an eye on the ‘Support Us’ section of the Horniman website. This is a wonderful way of supporting our redevelopment whilst you and your family can enjoy a lasting acknowledgment of your support for our much-loved Gardens.
