Such a lovely hidden gem near St. Pauls. The can't-miss part of the park is a memorial wall with tiles commemorating those who lost their lives so others could live.

A hidden gem. It is a small park (super quiet and tranquil) with benches, trees, flowers and a koi pond. The main feature of the park is a memorial wall with decorative tiles which record the heroic deeds of ordinary Londoners who lost their lives to save others.
