The Tide is the name of a new park in Greenwich, London. The recreational site is set to be five kilometers long and it is a divergence from the traditional format. Its main purpose is not only to facilitate more green spaces in the city but also to establish a connection between the "seven neighborhoods that make up the Greenwich Peninsula."
When designing the park, Diller Scofidio + Renfro focused on providing areas with vantage points and ones that promoted sociability. For example, The Tide features areas that are dotted with artwork — from the recognizable sculptural aesthetic of Damien Hirst to "Antony Gormley's 1999 Quantum Cloud."
Combining nature and art, the new park in Greenwich, London will surely have a positive and unifying effect on the communities in the area.
