Character: Riverine/natural, semi-enclosed, ecological
Function: Habitat protection, education, walking/jogging, water/flood management, SuDS
The park follows the alignment of the ancient Ebbsfleet River and will highlight the heritage of both the river itself and the surrounding industrial landscape, whilst performing an important water management and flood mitigation function.
Existing wetland areas will be maintained to ensure the river is protected as a valuable ecological corridor. Limited/managed routes across/through the park will provide better connectivity with the wider Kent countryside.
