The Pergola Project

The Vision

This project was conceived in 2021 by the recently formed Friends of Denton Gardens.

The plan: Denton Gardens Pergola Improvements (PDF)

We were very lucky to have the professional garden designer, Jade Goto on our team of volunteers for this project. Planting schedule from Jade Goto Studio: 22.08.30 Denton Gds Planting (PDF)

Removal of the old pergola

Building the new pergola, centenary stone and planting up the pergola beds.

Celebrating the completion of the pergola and the centenary of the gardens on the 18th June 2022.

The beds adjacent to the pergola planted up with drought tolerant shrubs and grasses.

The almost completed project with the new benches situated on the pergola terrace.

A huge thank you to Worthing Borough Council and the Community Infrastructure Levy for providing the finance to enable us to complete this project. Thank you also to Anthony Read, the park rangers and the grounds maintenance team for their continued help.
