The Thames Barrier Park is a 7-hectare (17.3-acre) park in Silvertown in the London Borough of Newham and is named after its location on the north side of the River Thames next to the Thames Barrier. It is intended to aid the regeneration of the area by creating an attractive public space alongside residential and commercial developments. It is adjacent to Pontoon Dock DLR station.
Allain Provost and Alain Cousseran of Groupe Signes with Patel Taylor won the international competition to design the park in 1995. As the first largely post-modern design in London, the park has a fresh modern look with adventurous planting and dancing water fountains.

No parking for cars nearby anymore. There was a big car park but now they are building flats there instead! Cafe was closed too. The Park is still nice though, and there has been some money spent on the playground to improve the condition of it.

Very nice place to go to. Well kept and good for family. Has basketball hoop and football goals with a cafe. Amazing views as well.

Had some time to kill as my flight was delayed. The park is just one stop down (pontoon Dock) on the DLR so you can drop in for some RnR. The park has a selection of gardens, open play areas and a kids play area. Responsible dog owners seem to be welcome. Nice views of the Thames Barrier and some lovely wild gardens.

Good size and good quality playground. Calm, quite and clean. More flowers would make this park a five stars for a family’s weekend picnic.

A great river side park that offer ample amount of space and quite atmosphere. It is especially beautiful during sunny days and the Riverside makes for.an awesome spectacle. A must visit for residents on the south side of Thames.

I enjoyed the park, with the Thames Barrier at the end. So interesting to see and read how it works. The park is not big but it was nice and clean. There is also a coffee with a nice space outside to sit down and relax and public toilets at the back.

Nice lovely park for family and kids. Good children play area and the biggest feature of the park is open air gym with high standard equipment. Only downside is extremely hard to find parking around area as most areas have been converted to residents parking.

Great green area, good playground for kids and adults here, best thing is that there is a open public wc. Good place for the neighborhood
