A Walk in the Park - Bow Creek and East India Dock Basin

During this week's walk celebrating Lee Valley Regional Park's Golden Anniversary, we will visit the former ironworks, shipyard and coal wharf which is now a real wildlife haven in the urban environment. Bow Creek is a fascinating place to visit any time of year, and one that’s won the prestigious Green Flag Park Award for four years running.

Within sight of Canary Wharf and the O2 Arena, you’ll discover the old East India Dock Basin, now enjoying a new lease of life as an amazing wildlife sanctuary.
