As part of the Missing Link Launch Party and the start of Chelsea Fringe 2015, the RBC Waterscape Garden was officially opened to the public on Friday 15 May.
In 2014 Hugo Bugg was the youngest ever winner of a Chelsea Gold medal for a main avenue show garden. This was for the RBC Waterscape Garden. Hugo wanted to relocate his winning design in the heart of a public place as part of urban regeneration. He wanted it to be publicly accessible and show some of the sustainable re-use of water ideas in the Public Realm. So at the end of Chelsea last year Hugo and the Royal Bank of Canada teamed up with Vauxhall One, the Business Improvement district and The Mayor’s Pocket Park programme, to regenerate a forgotten part of London’s South Bank.
The opening ceremony included the following principle guests and speakers:Lib Peck- Leader of Lambeth Council David Thomas – CEO of Royal Bank of Canada, Europe. Ben Plowden – Director of TfL Hugo Bugg – Director of Hugo Bugg Landscapes Tim Richardson – Director of Chelsea Fringe
The RBC Waterscape garden is now open for the public to enjoy and is located very close to Vauxhall Station, London:Vauxhall Walk London SE11 5HL
