Peace in the park

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

It is run by volunteers who have a passion for the park. It is very restful and for the locals , and children a highlight in a very crowded world. We could hear a lot of bird wildlife, the problem is trying to spot!!. We saw one swift whilst we were there

Every weekend there are different activities going on at Ecology Park for kids and for adults. My little girl (5yrs) love this place. Great outdoor activity for the whole family.

The park is a wetlands area along the Thames just a short walk down from the O2. Although small, the winding boardwalk layout makes it feel surprisingly expansive... despite the large blocks of flats that are springing up all around it. As soon as you step inside, it feels like you've entered another world, and it's clearly a valuable refuge... More

The teacher was the best educator and entertainer of young children I have ever come across. Kept a dozen 2-6 year olds and their parents enthralled.

This was a real surprise. We were walking the Thames Path and wandered into this little park on spec - it turned out to be a very pleasant visit. There are boardwalks through the marshes and a couple of hides overlooking the lakes, we had a good view of baby terns on the special platforms on the lake. The place... More

We have just got back from a fabulous day at the park here. The staff were so lovely and never tired of the constant questions of the children, and were patient and friendly. I can't believe it was free, had such a good time, saw some amazing mini-beasts, water creatures and bugs. The kids loved it and so did I... More

A slice of the countryside just a short walk from the O2. Free to go in and walk around and enjoy the peace and quiet. Events organised for the children during school holidays.

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.

The team at the park run a great experience with lots of activities for kids younger and older. Try your hand at pond dipping or a nature trail. A superb day out all year round

Staying in Greenwich

Neighbourhood Profile
Greenwich Mean Time starts here, so to speak, as the very concept of global time was established at Royal Observatory, just one of several buildings of architectural interest in Greenwich. Indeed, the whole of Greenwich's historic town center, its Royal Park and a number of related buildings (and one world famous ship, the Cutty Sark) make up the UNESCO World Heritage site known as Maritime Greenwich. Today a laser beam is shot out across the night sky from the Observatory to mark the location of the Prime Meridian. Other bold (some say brash) 21st century additions to the area include landmarks such as The O2 entertainment complex (previously known as the Millennium Dome) and the Air Line cable cars, which offer scenic transport across the Thames between North Greenwich and the Royal Docks.
