The Tide, Greenwich Peninsula

A NEW RIVERSIDE DESTINATION FOR ART, DESIGN & WELLBEING

 

This July the first section of The Tide, a new cultural linear park running alongside the Thames, opens on Greenwich Peninsula. The Tide, designed by Diller Scofidio + Renfro, the co-designers of New York City’s High Line, in collaboration with Neiheiser Argyros, provides a new outdoor destination for London. Offering an evolving collection of free-to-view public art by emerging and world-renowned artists along a landscaped route for running, walking and meditation, The Tide is freely accessible to all.

 

The first 1km of the 5km long landscape features elevated walkways 9 metres high and flows through native trees and giant sculptures by Damien Hirst and Allen Jones. Sunken gardens, a 27 metre long outdoor picnic table and a unique jetty garden surrounded by the river provide respite from the city bustle.
