Silvertown: Thames Barrier Park: The Green Dock (1)
The Thames Barrier Park is a 7 hectare public green space that is managed by the Greater London Authority. When it was opened in November 2000 it was Londonís largest new riverside park for over 50 years. It was designed by landscape architect Allain Provost of Groupe Signes of Paris and architects Patel Taylor of London. The park was created on a site that once housed petrochemical and acid works on the Thames riverbank. The contaminated soil was covered with a 6 foot layer of crushed concrete to protect the new soil laid on top.

This part of the park is the 'Green Dock', an approximate 220 metre long sunken garden running diagonally through the park that is intended as a reminder of the site's dockland heritage. It is crossed by two bridges, the other one of which is in the distance and is in grid square TQ4179.
