Bartlett Park, Tower Hamlets


Our design reinvents Poplar's Bartlett Park by introducing a new masterplan, which greatly improves the green spaces available to the local community and so encourages people to spend more time outdoors and enjoy an active lifestyle. Facilities for footballers and dog walkers will be reprovided, with other new uses introduced such as inclusive play, an outdoor gym, tennis courts, planted garden space, picnic areas, community event spaces and a new fantastic canal side amenity, which will improve access to the towpath and water.

A new designated community garden with ‘quiet’ spaces provides further opportunity for tranquil enjoyment and a feeling of being close to nature. A focus on biodiversity and new planting across the masterplan will also ensure the long term sustainability and vibrancy within the park.
