H2O and the Paddington Reservoir Gardens

February 24, 2016 § Leave a comment

These award winning Paddington Reservoir Gardens still have a freshness about them. It was last used as a water reservoir in 1899 and after various uses was transformed in 2009, where the framework of the reservoirs was retained and various contemporary elements added. The sunken lawns, gardens and plaza areas are a haven in the blistering and humid heat of this summer. There are numerous vantage and entry points and spaces where people can both have some privacy or be in groups. The current exhibition, H2O Water Bar,  is a tasting bar with a difference. It draws on its former use with a playful approach to bars and water by artist, Janet Laurence.
