The beautiful Thames Barrier Park, opened in 2001, was London's first new park for half a century. It has a lush sunken garden of waggly hedges and and offers perhaps the best views from land of the fabulously sculptural Thames Barrier. The park features a children's play area, a fountain plaza where kids can splash about and a five-aside football/basketball court. The Thames Barrier Information and Learning Centre lies at the opposite end of the barrier on the south sde of the river.
