Thames Barrier Park, so-named due to its proximity to the Thames Barrier, has been formed on a patch of derelict land previously in industrial use since the late 1860s. It represents the first new public park along the Thames riverfront for nearly 50 years.
Planning for a park here began in the 1980s under the Greater London Council, and it was created under the auspices of the London Docklands Development Corporation and English Partnerships.
