Surrounded by 28 acres of existing parkland, Deptford Landings, formerly The Timberyard, is closely connected to nature and there are a number of initiatives being introduced that will increase ecology and bring wildlife back into the area, including the planting of over 300 new trees, alongside green and brown roofs. As well as the existing parks, homes will be built around private courtyard gardens and a new linear park will be created featuring The Waterline, a water feature that captures the movement of the former Grand Surrey Canal. Being nestled between so many green open spaces, you could find it hard to believe you are just a five-minute stroll to the River Thames.
