Stave Hill & Ecological Park
Stave Hill is an artificial hill adjacent to the 5.2-acre Stave Hill Ecological Park, it is part of Russia Dock Woodland. The woodland park occupies land that was previously Russia Dock and Stave Dock, both part of the Surrey Commercial Docks, which were filled in during the mid-1980s and then redeveloped by the London Docklands Development Corporation.
Stave Hill is a 9m high artificial mound in the shape of a truncated cone, with a viewing platform and relief map of the former docks in cast bronze by Michael Rizzello at the top. It provides remarkable views over Canary Wharf, the City of London, and much of south and central London; on clear days the view stretches as far as Wembley Stadium.
It was created in 1985 by the LDDC, using spoil from the works to fill and landscape the areas formerly occupied by commercial docks.
