Canary Wharf’s free minigolf course is open again for another summer of colourful putting. The re-opening of the bold course designed by art duo Craig & Karl will once again see Montgomery Square filled with vibrancy and fun for the second year running.
Craig & Karl’s 9-hole minigolf course re-opens on Thursday 6 April and is free to play from 12noon-6pm daily. The course welcomes families, friends and colleagues looking for a quick lunch putt-stop to take part in some friendly competition.
Brightening up Canary Wharf’s plentiful outdoor spaces, the course includes joyful novelty features, from a neon orange jump ramp to a pink and yellow chequered bridge, incorporating graphic patterns, vivid polka dots and bold geometric shapes in a one-of-a-kind course.
The duo, who work collaboratively every day despite being based in New York and London respectively, met in Australia during their first year of college. Having worked on commissions for global brands including Adidas and Google, the pair are known for incorporating their playful style into everyday life.
A number of playful table tennis tables designed by Art of Ping Pong can also be found in Montgomery and Union Square and have been installed for the public to enjoy year-round. Inspired by the intersection of art & play, the tables are an opportunity for healthy lunch-break competition or a weekend family tournament.
Lucie Moore, Associate Director, Arts and Events at Canary Wharf Group comments: “We are delighted to re-open Craig & Karl’s minigolf course for another summer season after its popularity in 2022. The course adds a unique and vibrant style to Canary Wharf’s ever-growing collection of artworks and is sure to bring out friendly competition in friends, families and office workers on the wharf. Art of Ping Pong’s eye-catching tables further add to the number of free activities we have on offer, perfect for getting outdoors on a sunny day.”
The minigolf course and ping pong tables form part of Canary Wharf’s growing portfolio of free to enjoy events and artworks including London’s largest collection of outdoor public art, with over 100 pieces dotted around the Estate. Visitors can also enjoy free reading material from the Short Story Stations or can follow the Children’s Art Trail for a free family day out.
Following a game, visitors can explore the surrounding area with over 300 restaurants, bars, and stores across five shopping malls – a one-stop-shop for an unmissable day out. Exciting new restaurant openings include Bombay-inspired Dishoom, family friendly Zizzi and sustainable steak spot M restaurant.
