PIN Wapping Gardens

Let the kids run free in Wapping

Wapping Gardens make it difficult to believe that visitors are so close to the London chaos. The Gardens today have a fountain and playground, with perimeter planting of shrubs and a number of fine plane trees. It is very much an oasis of peace close in London`s East End and a lovely peace of greenery for visitors to break their journey in.

Brief history

Formerly known as Wapping Recreation Ground, this was one of the earliest applications under the provisions of the 'Artizans' and Labourers' Dwellings Improvement Act' of 1875. The gardens were formed on the site of slum clearance in 1886 and were laid by the Metropolitan Board of Works. They were opened to the public on 8th June 1891.
