Garland Square is a fictional urban complex which is the setting in Time Crisis: Crisis Zone.
Garland Square is located in the outskirts of London. It comprises of Drycreek Plaza, Belforte Hotel (name not revealed in the arcade version), Garland Park and Garland Technology Center. 5 Km (3 miles) underneath Garland Square is an experimental atomic reactor constructed by Garland Electric, named Geyser 1.
Soon after the opening of Garland Square, it is taken over by a terrorist group called the U.R.D.A., led by Derrick Lynch. Since the terrorists held no hostages and made no demands for their reason for occupying the complex, the S.T.F. is sent to as been ordered to liberate Garland Square and suppress the U.R.D.A. Squad 1, the task force responsible for the liberation of Garland Square, is led by the player character, Claude McGarren (or Croad Macgalain, as he is known in the arcade version).
Although heavy resistance is imminent throughout Garland Square, Squad 1 secure the area, but fail to find Lynch. S.T.F. Headquarters than receives disturbing information about Lynch's goal of "over-working" an experimental atomic reactor 5 Km (3 miles) below the complex. McGarren and Squad 1 engage in a tense time-sensitive conflict to nullify Lynch and to prevent the reactor from becoming unstable, ultimately saving the security of London.
Six months after the Garland Square incident, new U.R.D.A. mastermind Jared Hunter gathers the remnants and occupies Grassmarket District and Belforte Hotel. Once again, McGarren and Squad 1 are sent to annihilate the U.R.D.A. remnants and rescue the hostages. The platoon first battle a droid called the A-0940, then Hunter provokes Squad 1 into a fight on top of Belforte Hotel's pool area with Squad 1 coming as the victor. As Hunter attempts to escape in a military cruiser, McGarren engages him in an air-to-sea chase to crush Hunter and ultimately secure Grassmarket.
