  • Visitor Information

Greenwich Peninsula Ecology ParkWhen English Partnerships bought the land (historically known as Greenwich Marsh) in 1997 they instigated a massive regeneration project which included bringing 121 hectares of neglected land back to life. Innovative new schemes were put into place, including restoring parts of the riverbank and creating the Greenwich Peninsula Ecology Park as a freshwater habitat. The Park itself is made up of an inner lake (access through the Gatehouse during opening hours) and outer lake (accessible at all times). A fascinating variety of wildlife thrives in the Park, including frogs, toads and newts. In spring and summer the Park comes alive with brightly coloured dragonflies, damselflies, and butterflies. Specially designed bird hides allow you to watch the many different species, including water birds living along the River Thames, without disturbing them. There is something at the Park whatever the season, from dawn chorus bird watching to conservation ideas or just simply relaxing in beautiful surroundings.

There are a host of organised activities you can join in with - from evening bat walks to summer fun days for the family. During term time, the Park is open for school visits where children can experience nature first hand. Ask the Wardens for more details.
