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 visits are free but currently limited to specific days and times with a limit on numbers.
Greenwich Peninsula Ecology Park is open to the public every Wednesday, Friday and Sunday for 2 sessions each day – 10am to 12noon and 1.30pm to 3.30pm. You do not have to book but we will be limiting visitor numbers to 12 at any one time.
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 to 12. A staff member will be available to answer questions, count people in and out and to ask you to fill out a form for NHS Track and Trace.
As the situation and Government advice changes, we may have to alter arrangements or close the park at short notice but we will keep people informed via this website and our social media. Please read through our frequently asked questions for more information on how to book, what to expect from your visit, access and other details.
Autumn is a great time to visit the park to see late flowering wildflowers, reeds turning orange, shrubs bearing fruit, wasp spiders and orb spiders on delicate webs and dragonflies on the wing until late October or early November. Birds change over the seasons and you may spot passing migrants, stopping to rest or feed in the park, and winter visitors from Russia and Scandinavia.
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.
