Crossrail Place Roof GardenWith its semi open-air timber lattice roof the Crossrail Place Roof Garden on top of the Crossrail station in Canary Wharf provides a welcoming public space, a place of calm and tranquility between the residential neighbourhood of Poplar and the business district of Canary Wharf. Like the building below it, the gardens that top the seven-storey station have been designed by Foster + Partners. Referencing the area's maritime heritage, many of the plant species that feature in the garden are indigenous to countries that were explored during the 19th century by trading shops that used the docks in Canary Wharf. The roof garden is open to the public from dawn until dusk and unlike the Sky Garden in the City you don't have to book in advance to go there. For the first few months, from May to August 2015, a summer programme of performance and activity is laid on at the 50-seat Performance Space, overseen by local theatre company the Space Theatre based in nearby Isle of Dogs.
