Tiber Gardens vandalism

Tiber_gardens_vandalismLisa Tang reports some mindless vandalism with a can of paint at Tiber Gardens, just North of Regents Canal.  The garden area here has a lovely Southerly aspect over the canal basin and has much potential for refurbishment, but it is a really hard space for residents to manage – secluded, with three entrances, one onto the canal.  The canal entrance has been closed for some time but htis hasn’t done much to check vandalism.  Hopefully, with some money or goodwill from the developers of the huge new Guardian building Kings Place on York Way and the Council.  There are very few places to sit away from the traffic in Kings Cross (Edward Square is the only other i can think of) it is such a shame that this one isn’t very hospitable.

  1. I just had a thought – it maybe off the wall but…. Is there a kind of Canal Watch type thing? There are quite a few properties overlooking the canal at the stretch between York Way and The Cally including those on Battlebridge Basin, making spotting vandals or other problems before they get out of hand a possibility. I wonder if there isn’t, whether setting one up maybe useful?
