A green space in Tower Hamlets will be officially opened tomorrow, as part of a £55million regeneration project.

St Stephen’s Green, located on the Parkside Estates in Bow, was said to be an under-used piece of land, which has been transformed as part of a project by Old Ford Housing Association to regenerate the area.

The green on the corner of St Stephens Road and Old Ford Road now boasts two specially commissioned giant flower sculptures, as part of the Old Ford trail of flowers motif, which began at Lefevre Park.

It also features activity areas, a wall sculpture, directional footpaths and seating areas.

The green will be officially opened to the public tomorrow (May 18) by Bow West councillor and leader of Tower Hamlets Labour opposition, Joshua Peck, along with Old Ford Housing Association Managing Director June Morton.

Gates will be opened to school children following a brief opening ceremony at 1.30pm. Refreshments will be provided.
