New Mural at George’s Park

You may have noticed a flurry of activity around George’s Park in George Street over the past few weeks and seen a large mural appear. The Portman Estate and Baker Street Quarter Partnership are delighted to have supported this new flora and fauna-inspired mural, enhancing the pocket park which has been part of the area since 2018. George’s Park provides a valued spot for respite and relaxation, with trees and plants to encourage wildlife and biodiversity.

This is the latest collaboration project by The Portman Estate and Baker Street Quarter Partnership in supporting the enhancement of public realm in the community. As part of the process, we consulted local community stakeholders including residents and workers, through online sketch workshops and an outdoor pop-up exhibition, ensuring the street art installation complements Marylebone’s community and identity.

Alice Roche Barton, artist, illustrator and designer, was commissioned to design and produce the artwork with Sing London. The mural celebrates the nature and wildlife connected to the history of Marylebone, and has been placed on a vast brick wall to the side of the park, bringing colour and catching the eye of passers-by.

This project was enabled by funding from The Portman Estate, Baker Street Quarter Partnership and Westminster City Council’s Open Spaces, Greener Places programme.
