As a component part of the future Lea River Park, Three Mills Green provides a high-quality open space that will act as both a catalyst for long-term support and a core around which a future park can grow. The project has a clearly expressed concept and design which created an attractive space for this emerging area with an innovative response to contamination on the site.

As a component part of the future Lea River Park, Three Mills Green aimed to provide a high quality open space as a resource for the local community but also that will act as a catalyst for future development and a link to the wider Lea Valley Regional Park and the Olympic Park. The specific objectives of the project were to enhance a flexible open space with capacity to host events, strengthen the convergence of key routes along the Lea Valley, introduce play and sport opportunities, and protect and enhance ecological values whilst minimising future maintenance costs and ensuring flexibility for future changes due to future development.
