Barking Riverside partners with UKActive

Barking Riverside Limited has partnered with UKActive to create more opportunities for residents in Thames Ward to be active. UKActive are conducting an ambitious research project for us, as London’s only ‘Healthy New Town’, investigating how we can maximise our 2km of water frontage and ultimately deliver new river facilities to our residents.

We will consult with London’s water and coastal authorities and agencies on emerging concepts and ideas, as well as drawing on ukactive’s expertise.

Committed to creating a healthy environment for our residents, our pioneering plans have set out to include physical activity by design; identifying exciting new opportunities for the area – which could be anything from Dragon Boat Racing on the Thames to open water swimming in a public lido!
