Explore the gardens and play areas that make up Thames Barrier Park at the Royal Docks.

The riverside park has lawns edged with yew trees, and scented gardens home to a variety of plants and wildlife. Bring a picnic and let the kids wear themselves out in the play area.

Embrace the park’s dockland heritage with a walk through the 54-metre (180ft) sunken garden, known as the Green Dock, that runs diagonally across the space. Take in views of the Thames Barrier from the bridges that span the Green Dock.
