Get back to nature at Bow Creek Ecology Park

Near the site former site of the Thames Ironworks and Shipbuilding Company in East London, is Bow Creek Ecology Park, redeveloped into an urban nature reserve with streams, ponds, footpaths, observation points and seats. The park also features an external classroom from local children.

The park is on a peninsula at a bend in the River Lea, which it shares with the DLR between East India and Canning Town, and is home to a range of flowers and insects during the summer months, when ponds teem with newts and Water Scorpion. At low tide, the mud at Leamouth also attracts flocks of waders such as Redshank, when they are in season.

For more information, visit the Lee Valley Park website here.
