City Meets Nature: Abandoned Transport Routes Turned Into Parks
Westway Gardens, London, UK
The Westway, the 2.5-mile (4 km) flyover slicing through Kensington and Chelsea, opened in 1970, with 23 acres of derelict space below it. It hosts a vintage clothes market three days a week and has one million visitors a year.A further 3.5 acres of community gardens are tended by staff and volunteers. This year the Westway Sports and Fitness Centre became a temporary refuge for residents evacuated from blocks close to Grenfell Tower.
