Long Description:
This Silhouette metal arch, featuring trains, wagons, and people, And the words The Secret Garden, above the footpath into this small park. located alongside the Grand Union Canal opposite Wolverton Park, the Secret Garden is one of the hidden gems of Wolverton!

"The site was formerly occupied by 4 villas (semi-detached houses), built by the London & Birmingham Railway Company in the 1840s to house some of the important members of the management of the Railway Works. The houses were occupied until the late 1960s when they were demolished and the area became neglected.

In 1999 a sub-committee, which eventually evolved into the Wolverton Secret Garden Society, was formed to pursue the project to turn the land into a community garden". Text Source: (visit link)
