Picken Lawn Restoration Picken Lawn is a much loved place. A place for sitting and enjoying the garden, talking to friends, playing music or kicking a ball. After years of patching and trying to fix the hardened earth, we have completed the Picken Lawn restoration project. The 2016 Annual Giving Program provided the resources to support the replacement of the hard topsoil, improving drainage and the planting of new grass that will endure the hot summers and busy use. The generosity of our community has made sure that our current and future students will be able to enjoy Picken Lawn in the same way as past generations. We hope that when you visit the College next you have time to stop for a moment to enjoy Picken Lawn.
