When building in a big city space is often hard to come by, so when planning a new outdoor escape in London this new park looked up and out.

The UK capital’s latest park, The Tide, designed by Diller Scofidio and Renfro, in collaboration with Neiheiser Argyros and Gross. Max, has been created to give tourists and Londoners a place to pause, reflect, and enjoy views of the city.

As part of a scheme to inject more greenery into the capital, the Tide Park at Greenwich Peninsula will feature array of impressive aspects that’ll present tourists and Londoners with a place for running, walking, meditation, and much more.

Opening in July 2019, the first kilometer of the 5 – kilometer – long park features elevated walkways 30 feet in the air, sunken gardens, picnic areas, a jetty garden plus decked walkways with native trees planted around them, plus natural greenery to provide visitors with a place to relax, reflect and take a step back from the every day hustle and busy of city life.

Once fully completed the entire 5 km route will connect similar parks along the newly developed area overlooking the Thames in Greenwich.

If the park wasn’t enough, legendary sculptor Damien Hirst’s two new sculptures Hydra and Kali and Mermaid will also be placed at the heart of the development.
