About the Garden
Whitestone Garden is a hidden corner of Hampstead Heath, and was the site of one of the first major conservation projects undertaken by Heath Hands in 2001 supported by the City of London Corporation. Previously overgrown and home to public conveniences, the garden was re-opened to the public in 2003 after much maintenance work that continues to this day.
The garden has been turned into a beautiful wild green oasis, an escape from the bustle of nearby Hampstead and providing refuge to wildlife and people from the nearby main roads.
Visiting the Garden
We encourage visitors to visit and spend some time in Whitestone Garden, the perfect place to have a picnic, read a book, or simply sit and listen to the birds. The garden is dedicated to the impact made by our late founder Bobby de Joia.
The garden is located near the South-West corner of Hampstead Heath, close to Hampstead tube station and near the junction of Heath Street and East/West Heath Roads - see adjacent map.
