Greenwich Peninsula Ecology Park is made up of an outer and inner boardwalk. The outer boardwalk is open 24 hours a day, 7 days a week. The inner boardwalk has controlled access and currently visits must be booked in advance.
Greenwich Peninsula Ecology Park is open to the public again from Wednesday 29th July 2020 but with limited opening hours and session times which must be booked in advance.
The park is a small site with access in and out through a single building and with long stretches of boardwalk and several pinch points. To keep both visitors and staff safe, we are limiting the number of people who can visit at any one time and introducing a booking system.
From Wednesday 29th July to Friday 11th September, you will be able to book one of 5 free sessions on each Wednesday, Friday and Sunday. A maximum of 12 people will be booked for each session so that visitors can enjoy the park safely.
We will review opening hours for autumn later in August, based on Government guidance. As the situation and Government advice changes frequently at the moment, we may have to change things slightly to adapt but we will keep people informed.
We will not be able to offer our usual range of family activities on site over the summer but, by booking a visiting session, you will be able to enjoy the sights, smells and sounds of the natural world in this urban oasis. You can also pick up our Peninsula Trail and a Summer Activity Pack.
Summer is the best time to see the wildflower meadows and marshes and to see butterflies, dragonflies and damselflies among many other fascinating insects. See our Events page for details of four fabulous Family Wildlife Photography sessions with professional wildlife photographer, Iain Green.

Please follow social distancing and Government guidance when you visit. If you are showing any symptoms of coronavirus, or if you have been in contact with anyone that has the virus in the last 14 days, please do not visit.
