An urban park landscaped by Newham Council in the early 1980s. A good range of habitats have been created, including a lake, areas of scrub and woodland, and a wildflower meadow. The lake supports common breeding waterfowl, including mute swan. The broad belts of native trees and shrubs provide valuable habitat for birds. .
