Tunnel Gardens. The text below is from British History Online The rebuilding that followed the completion of the Blackwall Tunnel left a long irregularly shaped plot between the northern approach road and the East India Dock Wall. This site had been retained in case a growth in road traffic required a widening of the tunnel entrance and approach road, or the construction of a second tunnel. However, rather than allow the land to remain waste until expansion was necessary, in 1901 the LCC decided to convert it into a public playground. (ref. 362) The plan was for a fully paved playground divided by a brick wall, the northern half for boys and the southern one for girls and infants, with part of East India Dock Wall Road serving as a site for a gravelled and tree-lined terrace for adults watching their children at play (fig. 243).
