Welcome to Rembrandt Gardens
These tranquil canal side gardens are sunken from the road with good views out over the canal and Little Venice.
Situated at the Junction of Warwick Avenue and Harrow Road adjacent to "Brownings Pool" and the Paddington Arm of the Grand Union Canal, they contain seating that overlooks the picturesque canal side scene.
The gardens are relatively formal in feel and contain lawns along with good bedding plant displays, shrub borders and access to the canal towpath, they also contain public toilets (including Disabled WC).
The Gardens were first laid out in the early 1950's and the original name was Warwick Avenue Gardens. In 1975 the name was changed when the City of Westminster was linked with the City of Amsterdam in Holland. The Dutch presented tulips to the City Council and an opening ceremony was held with the Dutch in full national dress.
Works to bring the garden up to modern standards and make it compliant with the Disability Discrimination act were carried out during 2006. At this time the main garden underwent a major upgrade of its infrastructure and horticultural features.
This is a beautiful spot to spend a summer’s afternoon reading a book and enjoying the view over the adjacent canal.
