The Park stands near the King George V Dock, both of which are named after the current Queen's grandfather. It now houses Newham's City Farm.The City Farm was designed by the Borough's Landscape Architect and has traditional farm animals as well as more exotic beasts such as llamas, ferrets, wallabies and guinea pigs. It is beside Beckton District Park which is across Stansfield Road, which was created by the London Docklands Development Corporation in the late 1970s/early 1980s on fields and derelict industrial land between old settlements and new development. The park opened in 1982, with the city farm and new lake opening in 1983. Near the east end of the main bridleway and cyclepath entering Beckton District Park are 3 sculptures by Brian Yale, commissioned by the LDDC, 'Horses', 'Screen' of stylised trees, and a kinetic group of 'Birds'. The farm has animal paddocks, car park, and a visitors centre.
