Peninsula Gardens

London’s first new park for one hundred years draws inspiration from the varied history of Greenwich Peninsula from wilderness to the centre of heavy industry.

Peninsula Gardens

Formerly known as Greenwich Marshes, later as East Greenwich and now Greenwich Peninsula, the history is referenced in the different layers of the design.

Peninsula Gardens

The land forms take inspiration from the rivulets from the London flood plain, the trees from the alders that later covered the marshes, and the blackened wood and stone echoing the industrial revolution.

The Peninsula Gardens has been designed to be inherently resilient, inviting park users to engage and enjoy.
