New public realm for all to enjoy
Quayside Barking will provide 2.3 acres of curated public realm and gardens, an improved landscaped river walkway and a new River Roding footbridge, creating connections to neighbouring developments and the town centre for the local community.
Garden square will be the length of an Olympic swimming pool (1,650sqm)
Arrival square will be a similar size to the square outside Barking Town Hall
The landscaped river walk will create an attractive walking and running route with new planting and trees, incidental play spaces and public art. The design includes lean rails at key points along the River Walk to allow people to stop and overlook the river and multi-functional furniture will be provided that can be used for fitness, play, relaxing and act as sculptures when not in use.
