The Hidden GardensApril 3rd 2023
Once a courtyard filled with machinery, the space that lies behind the Tramway on Albert Drive is now a popular garden and favourite green facility for residents and visitors to the southside of Glasgow.
A tall brick chimney and a few metres of tramline are reminders of The Hidden Garden’s past as a tram depot, but today there are herb borders, small areas of woodland and wildflower meadow, sculptures and a decorative potager.
The garden is used as an outdoor classroom for local schools and as a hub for growing groups, as well as a break-out space for audiences who attend performances and art exhibitions in The Tramway, which is also home to rehearsal space for Scottish Ballet.
The garden is free to visit, but donations are encouraged, and these are shared with Scotland’s Gardens Scheme, which organises garden openings in aid of charity.
