Garden Centre Manager
The centre lies behind the Hilton Hotel and Greens Health Club on Waddon Way, just off the A23 Purley Way in Croydon. It was originally Croydon Lido, which opened in 1935 as one of only five London lidos with heating before World War 2. With state of the art ozone filtration and underwater floodlighting the pool was used for international water polo matches and was visited, at its peak, by 9000 people a day! It closed in 1979, but the original diving board remains in the plantarea - now grade 2 listed and frequently the subject of happy reminiscences!
We sell top quality growing stock, gardening products and garden furniture. We also have a fabulous giftware and greetings card department and at Christmas, a stunning display of decorations, lights and trees. Our welcoming Costa Cafe is perfect if you're after a quick caffeine fix during your visit.
Our friendly and helpful staff are horticultural experts who pride themselves on giving good practical advice to expert and amateur gardeners alike.
We all look forward to welcoming you to the centre soon.
