The Ecology Park will be close to the public at dusk on Wednesday 20th December 2023 and re-open on Saturday 6th January 2024 at 10am. Staff will be working on site or checking the park over this period. From 6th January, the Gatehouse and inner boardwalk area will be open to the public on Wednesdays, Thursdays, Fridays, Saturdays and Sundays from 10am to dusk.
Greenwich Peninsula Ecology Park is now over 23 years old and is undergoing a period of major infrastructure works to future-proof the park and maintain it as a high quality nature park for people and wildlife. This includes refurbishment and repair of the boardwalks, gatehouse, bird hides, borehole and water circulation systems.
The outer boardwalk is a permissive footpath but remains closed for major repairs and alterations to help the park cope with the increased density of development in the surrounding area. We have received planning permission to connect the outer boardwalk to the inner boardwalk via a new bridge that will allow the entire boardwalk network to be open only when the park is wardened – better for wildlife and a better experience for visitors.
