Get back to nature in Greenwich Peninsula Ecology Park

Greenwich Peninsula Ecology Park, perched on the side of the Thames about a mile South of the Millenium Dome (or 'the O2'), is a four acre wetland area which attempts to recreate wetland habitats in an urban setting.


The Park has two lakes, with raised walkways for visitors, and hosts a variety of wildlife including frogs, toads and newts. In spring and summer, we are told, the Park also has significant numbers of dragonflies, damselflies and butterflies.

Entry is free, and there is a small visitors centre with exhibits on the wildlife in the area. The Park is open Wednesday - Sunday, 10am - 5 pm or dusk, whichever is earlier.
