Potters Fields Park

Potters Fields Park is a rare green open space on London’s riverside. Found on the southern side of the Thames between Tower Bridge and City Hall, this popular and well-known park lies in the heart of tourist London. We were appointed in partnership with McNicholas Plc to work on its major refurbishment.

Overview

After a full site clearance of the area, we installed deep drainage and irrigation systems to the lawns and shrub beds, full civil works to new footways, boundary walls and cafe buildings. We also prepared reinforced lawn areas before the soft landscapers placed the topsoil and prepared turf.

Designed by landscape architects Gross.Max, the park is testament to the best in modern landscape design. A granite terraced border provides sweeping views across the Thames, lawns roll back from the riverside walk and provide open space for relaxation and public events, and colourful herbaceous gardens by world famous plant designer Piet Oudolf provide beauty alongside ‘Blossom Square’, a seated area surrounded by blossom trees.

Potters Field is very much connected to its distinctive local history and provides a safe, clean and restful space within the bustle of the city for local communities, workers and tourists alike. Completed in 2007, the project went on to receive a Bali Award in 2008.
