Image of a flower bed in Fred Roche Gardens in Central Milton Keynes


"Fred Roche Gardens lie in the heart of the city centre, behind Christ the Cornerstone church and The Guildhall, and overlooked by offices on Silbury and Midsummer Boulevards. They provide a tranquil haven in the busy commercial district of Central Milton Keynes. The gardens include lawns, borders, formal features, and quiet seating areas, all laid out on a number of different levels by the original designers of Central Milton Keynes. A remnant of a lane predating Milton Keynes is preserved in one corner, and a number of sculptures by Bernard Schottlander are given an attractive setting.

Previously known as City Gardens, the Gardens were officially re-named in honour of Fred Roche by the Mayor of Milton Keynes, Councillor Catriona Morris, at a private ceremony attended by members of his family and the Fred Roche Foundation on 9 November 2012, 20 years to the day after his death."
