Geocache Description:

40ml container attached with magnets.

This riverside park was named Bernie Spain Gardens after Bernadette Spain, one of the original Coin Street Action Group campaigners. Between 1984 and 1988 Coin Street Community Builders organised the demolition of derelict buildings, the completion of the South Bank riverside walkway and the laying out of a new riverside park. This opened up spectacular views of the Thames, St. Paul's Cathedral and the City.

The park stretches between the riverside and Stamford Street bordered by Oxo Tower Wharf and Gabriel's Wharf and straddles Upper Ground.

A regular venue for public events, notably the summer Coin Street Festival series of free cultural extravaganzas.

The park was built by - and is now owned and managed by - Coin Street Community Builders.
