An excellent park for young kids, us two retirees liked spending an hour or so there as well, even though it was in January. Plus it's free.

Wonderful place to visit, for both adults and children. Lots to see and learn, with ponds and woods to walk through. Great information centre with excellent staff. An oasis in North Greenwich.

This Ecology Park sandwiched between substantial housing developments is a wild oasis and a hidden gem that provides an educational hub and a sanctuary for the wildlife The developers are encroaching and I sincerely hope that the park survives for many years to come!

A moment of calm to be found in London. This really is a spot to cherish and the bird life is definitely worth a visit. Looking forward to seeing it all the seasons
