With support from the GLA Pocket Park Fund and the Stratford Renaissance Partnership, Urban Space Management teamed up with Groundwork London to design a unique rooftop urban park.

The park includes planting, seating, a bar, an open-air cinema and a number of vintage sports cars used as planters, complementing spectacular views over the Queen Elizabeth Olympic Park.

Recycled pallets, scaffold boards, plants from the Chelsea Flower Show, and even recycled decking from the Olympic Park footbridge were used to make planters full of shrubs and saplings to bring colour and scents to the space.

Roof East is home to the GrowUp Box, an urban farm based in a shipping container using aquaponics and vertical growing to demonstrate a sustainable model for local food production.

Launched in June 2014, the park plays host to a wide variety of cultural events, from music and dance performances to family activities during the school holidays.
