Albion Square is an early Victorian garden square in the heart of Hackney. It was designated a conservation area in 1975 and provides the setting for a number Grade II listed buildings. It has a fountain of local importance.
"Groundwork London" created a project which involved the repair of the fountain, upgrading of footpaths and various elements of soft and hard landscaping.The community was involved through the local residents association who undertake a number of activities in the square each year including Open House and London Garden Squares Day. The repair to the fountain provided a much needed source of drinking water for visitors and contributed to making the site a more pleasant experience. The improvements to the paths addressed issues of access for people with disabilities as well as people with children.
