Time Out Says

London Pleasure Gardens sees the transformation of the derelict, ex-industrial Pontoon Dock into a pleasure garden featuring round-the-clock music, arts, cafés and bars. The Gardens aim to revive the centuries-old tradition of pleasure gardens in London; in fact the Royal Docks had its own such garden between 1851 and 1884. Attractions include landscaped walkways, a wilderness meadow, RIBA-designed follies, street art by Shepard Fairey, RISK, Ron English and others graffiti legends, an oyster and champagne bar, two permanent music/arts venues, the 'harbour garden' installation made in collaboration with local community groups, and Silo D, a listed building with a purpose-built earthwork in front of it to accommodate audiences for projections, pyrotechnics shows and other events. Events scheduled over the summer include firework displays, music festivals and promenade performances.
