Description

Bow Creek Ecology Park is a small park running alongside and underneath the Docklands Light Railway near Canning Town Station. The Bow Creek reach of the lower River Lea is a tidal estuary here in Lower Lea Valley.

The park features small streams and ponds, an outdoor classroom, footpaths, observation points, and seating. It is an important resource for local education.

History

The park was created by the London Docklands Development Corporation (LDDC) in 1994, after a survey identified rare and unusual plant species in the area, some presumed carried in by shipping, such as Hairy Buttercup (Ranunculus sardous), Walthamstow Cress, and Unreel’s Wormwood.

The Park has won a Green Flag Award for the fourth year in 2010, and was also nominated for the UK Landscape Award 2010.
