Opened in 2003, the Hidden Gardens is an award-winning unique public greenspace and community development organisation located in Pollokshields, one of Scotland’s most diverse communities.
The Hidden Gardens exists to promote understanding between people of all cultures, faiths and backgrounds. It celebrates the universal spirit of nature, with subtle references to the paradise gardens that have evolved over the last three thousands years.
In addition to being a beautiful greenspace where people can relax away from the busy city streets, the Gardens is a place of learning and exchange; a place where people can come together and share stories, skills and histories.
Through its programme of events and activities, big and small, the Hidden Gardens is striving to create a common ground for all of Scotland’s communities to come together.
The Hidden Gardens is operated by The Hidden Gardens Trust, a registered charity in Scotland.

The Hidden Gardens, Glasgow
Not so loud. It’s a garden of peace, designed by artists and gentle green-fingered types, tucked away at the back of Tramway.
