A Ukrainian Peace Garden is coming to the Baltic Triangle for Eurovision

A Ukrainian Peace Garden for The Eurovision Song Contest 2023 is being built on the Baltic Green in the Baltic Triangle area of Liverpool city centre.

The garden will provide an opportunity for locals, including displaced Ukrainians, and visitors to enjoy and appreciate the outdoor space. The garden will consist of sensory planting, footpath materials, and other features common in Ukraine. Liverpool’s Ukrainian community have helped inspire the garden’s design to ensure that the final piece is authentic.

Ukrainian Peace Garden

Multi award-winning designer, Peter Lloyd has commented:

“I am privileged to have been given this unique opportunity. It’s unfortunate that this year’s competition can’t be held in Ukraine, so it’s my hope that the garden will bring a little piece of Ukraine to Liverpool for all to appreciate. Being in an outdoor space surrounded by plants is important to everyone’s physical and mental wellbeing, so I hope the garden provides some comfort to the Ukrainians during this difficult time and can be a reminder that there are better times ahead. I’m also pleased to be supported by Baltic Triangle Area CIC on this project and I am confident that we can help them in their aim to create better spaces to work, live and visit in the months to come.”

The garden will feature sensory planting, a tranquil green space where users can go to relax and reflect, and allotment beds with seasonal vegetables. The plans also feature two concrete chess tables, providing activity and a moment to relax away from the hustle and bustle.

Children from the nearby St Vincent de Paul Catholic Primary School have been helping to create some decorative and contemplative pieces, which will be on show in the garden.

Community garden groups in the eco hub Roots in the City, also based in the Baltic Triangle, are involved in the growing of vegetables and herbs, which will be planted in the garden.

Participation and engagement of the local Ukrainian and Baltic Triangle communities will create a vibrant, attractive garden in the heart of this city centre community.
