Latz + Partner to develop designs for Lea River Park project

Landscape architecture firm Latz + Partner has been appointed to draw up detailed designs for a new £28m park in east London.

The first phase of the Lea River Park project will cover three sections of work to create a network of public spaces to be completed for the London Olympics in 2012.

The Lea River Park Design Framework's vision - drawn up by a team led by 5th Studio Architects - is for six new parks in the Lower Lea Valley, linked by a continuous linear parkland called the Fatwalk.

Latz + Partner will be working on a section of the Fatwalk - a riverside cycle and walking network - and parkland and public space at Three Mills Green and the East India Dock Basin.

A mixed-use park is due to be created at Three Mills Green, incorporating community landscaped gardens and sports pitches. At East India Dock Basin there will be a floating lido, bike-hire centre and event space.

The rest of 5th Studio's plan includes an ecology park, known as the Exotic Wild, and spaces that will be transformed into water meadows and allotments.
