When the Botanic Garden took over the use of 1 Brookside, the new main entrance to the garden was moved to the north-west corner, and included the construction of a new ticket office. It opened on 20 October 2008.

The gate was made by Mackay Engineering and the dark green colour is a shift away from the black that other ironwork is painted in Cambridge, e.g. along the western border of the garden next to Hobson's Conduit (apparently the fashion for black only came in after World War II).
