  • Visitor Information

Russia Dock Woodland won a prestigous Green Flag award in 2011. Following the closure of the Rotherhithe docks in the 1970s, the Rotherhithe Peninsula was redeveloped by the London Docklands Development Corporation (LDDC). In 1980 Russia Dock, originally a dock used for importing timber from Norway, Russia and Sweden, was in filled and planted as native grass areas for recreational activities, and a series of water channels and ponds providing habitats for kingfishers and herons. The park still contains surviving dock features including the retaining wall capstones and mooring chains. In 1985 the LDDC added an artificial hill, Stave Hill, to the west edge of the park, using waste material and rubble. A relief map of the former docks in cast bronze by Michael Rizzello stands at the top of the hill.
