Across the river from the Jephson Gardens, over Mill Bridge, lies the small Mill Gardens (approx 4 acres) with its large expanse of grass, childrens play area and boating lake and boathouse.
During the 1990’s Heritage Lottery Fund provided a £3 million grant to improve both Mill Gardens and Jephson Gardens gardens.
The investment as proved to be worthwhile as they were jointly voted “Best Park in Britain 2004” by the Royal Horticultural Society. In 2006, the gardens won its first Green Flag award. It has continually won almost every year since. It has been voted a Green Heritage Site by English Heritage.
