The £2.1m Garden of Reflection - Londonderry’s newest landmark and a major new shared-space and urban regeneration project for the city’s Bishop Street area - will be officially launched on Friday, June 26.

Similar to the Peace Bridge, the garden is designed as an ‘urban bridge’ to help reintegrate communities, this time in the heart of the actual Walled City of Londonderry.

The scheme has transformed a derelict courtyard linking Bishop Street to Pump Street. It will include public art works, a storytelling booth, an amphitheatre for events and an art gallery.
