The Grade 2 listed Ice House in Bromley Palace Park (aka Civic Centre) has had to be partly fenced off to combat repeated damage by vandals. As heritage fencing could not be found it was necessary to use a modern design instead. The sympathetic repair of the roof and buttresses remains to be carried out. Heritage England have identified this and some other listed garden features as at risk.
Derelict site of former Maze.
Where there used to be a pleasant Maze now stands an empty waste! The Maze was sacrificed so that easy access could be provided to construct the five new restaurants. Go to our Queens Garden campaign page to learn more about how this happened. Now Bromley council is deciding what to replace this wasteland with. It is proposed that a rustic ch ildren’s playground will be built here. Unfortunately intuBromley, who currently manage the shopping centre, are only willing to contribute £50k towards this, despite them gaining a valuable site for their multi-million pound development.This sadly is not much money for a really exciting playground worthy of this site. Four companies submitted proposals for this site. The best design, of a poor bunch, ŵas preferred by a local panel and it is hoped that the Bromley councillors will make their decision soon, so that this eyesore is no more.
