A look at Woolwich’s new park

Berkeley Homes have submitted plans for a new park on the Royal Arsenal site in Woolwich.

The park will run from near the square beside Dial Arch and the Crossrail station towards the Thames between the blocks now almost complete and those being built on the former Waterfront leisure centre car park.

The third of three towers to the east has now topped out:

The park will be beside hoardings on the right

A water feature is a core component of the forthcoming park, which will open in stages over coming years:

The current park nearby is a lovely space but was always intended as temporary, with some to be built on in coming years:

The existing park is named after Maribor, a beautiful city in Slovenia with which Woolwich is twinned.

Running a site alone takes time and a fair bit of money. Adverts are far from enough to cover it and my living costs as a private renter.
