Nine Elms Park phase one opens

Thames City has opened the first portion of the 2.5-acre Nine Elms Park. 

Designed by Gillespies and delivered by R&F Properties (UK) and C C Land, it includes water features, a nature inspired children’s play park, interactive trails, and intimate seating areas. 

A range of tree species, shrubs, and herbaceous plants have been planted to support biodiversity and to futureproof the park to withstand unpredictable weather patterns and the challenges of the urban environment. 

The park has multiple access points for pedestrian walkways and cycle paths, creating connections between Vauxhall to the east, through to Battersea Power Station and Battersea Park to the west, and to the wider regeneration of the area. 

Chairman of R&F Properties (UK), Guan Zhixiong, comments: “Green and open spaces are essential to the fabric of our communities. Named in homage to the nine iconic elm trees that bordered the area’s main road, the Nine Elms district has undergone dramatic transformation from being a riverside marshland dotted with windmills to a cluster of vibrant market gardens and, today, a bustling community in the city centre. We are committed to Nine Elms and have made a significant investment to ensure a greener future for the area with. vegetation, green and blue spaces all adding to and improving the biodiversity of our urban environments.”
