Visitors to the Park enjoy their close encounters with wildlife in many ways, from watching the squirrels and birds to admiring the deer, and the many species of trees.
The Park has remained an open space for centuries and has become a rich location for biodiversity. the ancient grazed grassland in the Deer Park, the acid grassland on Crooms Hill and the veteran trees being particularly valuable.
Anyone with an interest in wildlife can join the Friends' Wildlife Group.
For an overview of the flora and fauna in Greenwich Park, see the The Royal Parks' website.
The Wildlife Centre, Nature Trail and Deer Hide are currently closed.
The Friends of Greenwich Park and the Royal Parks organise wildlife activities in the Park on the last Saturday of each month. However these monthly activities are currently suspended until the new Education Centre is completed (part of the Greenwich Park Revealed Project).
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.
