Explore the gardens and play areas that make up Thames Barrier Park at the Royal Docks.
The riverside park has lawns edged with yew, and scented gardens which are 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 180 ft (54 metres) 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.
