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 while we await the outcome of a planning application for major repairs and alterations to help the park cope with the increased density of development in the surrounding area. We will update this page with any progress.
The inner boardwalk area is accessible through the wooden Gatehouse building and is usually open to the public on Wednesdays, Thursdays, Fridays, Saturdays and Sundays from 10am to 5pm, or dusk if earlier in autumn and winter. Due to major repair work, the inner park will be CLOSED to the public on WEDNESDAYS, THURSDAY AND FRIDAYS as well as the usual Mondays and Tuesdays, from MONDAY 11TH SEPTEMBER UNTIL FRIDAY 6TH OCTOBER 2023 but the regular WEDNESDAY VOLUNTEER WORKDAYS WILL STILL GO AHEAD (see Volunteer page for details). The inner park will however remain OPEN TO THE PUBLIC AT WEEKENDS throughout this period.
