Parks and Open spaces

Island Gardens is a public park located at the southern end of the Isle of Dogs – hence the name ‘Island’ – in the London Borough of Tower Hamlets on the north bank of the River Thames. The park was formally opened on 3 August 1895 by prominent local politician Will Crooks – one of many local improvements he instigated.

It is notable for its spectacular cross-river view of the classical buildings of the former Greenwich Hospital, the Cutty Sark and the National Maritime Museum, with Greenwich Park forming a backdrop. The northern entrance of the Greenwich foot tunnel is also within the park.
