Canary Wharf

Jubilee Park is a green public space in the centre of Canary Wharf, built above an underground railway station, effectively making it a roof garden. The focus of the park is the serpentine water channel which runs through a rough stone wall. Surrounding this is grassed slopes, benches, sculptures & a multitude of trees. The area is always in use, I think the location is perfect for office workers who want to have a relaxing lunch break. The trees make a canopy-like covering over the park, which blocks out a large proportion of the overbearing, surrounding buildings.
