Friends of Greenwich Park

Children

The Park offers adventures and interests to all ages. Grass stretches wide, flat and sloping, for all sorts of games and activities. There is an excellent playground with a pleasant sand-pit; a boating pond in the summer months; myriad birds - land and water based and of course the squirrels and the deer. 

For other fun and learning, there is the adjacent National Maritime Museum with its special galleries for young visitors and the Royal Observatory.

Family Wildlife Activities

The Friends of Greenwich Park and the Royal Parks are delighted to announce that they will be recommencing activities on Saturday 30th April 2022 between 1 and 4 pm. Covid makes the use of the existing building quite tricky and so the volunteers will be setting up gazebos on the grass near the path in the Flower garden, outside the Wildlife Centre. In fact it is rather nice to be outside in the fresh air.

We will open monthly on the last Saturday of the month until either the end of August or the end of September. It depends when works start on the new Education Centre which is part of Greenwich Park Revealed. We will know well in advance and will post details here.

Activities vary from seed planting, discussion of the deer (who are temporarily away from Greenwich while their area has noisy work taking place), looking at ecology and pollution problems and thinking how we can all help to be more aware. Each month activities will change as the seasons progress.

There is no need to book, just turn up. It is free and we would love to see you.
