Hire a pedalo in Greenwich Park

If you're off to support a loved-one in the marathon this morning, and looking for a quick distraction while they run the Woolwich bit, you might consider hiring a pedalo in Greenwich Park.

Sure they're a bit large for the pond, but next year the pond will become a water jump for the Olympic horse prancing which will take place in the park, and will be lost for an uncertain amount of time.

  1. Oo-er really weird. Reminded by the location of the London Marathon start today, husband and I were reminiscing about picnics in Greenwich Park in our early married days in 1970. I said, " Do you remember the pedalos in the boating lake?" Are we too old to enjoy a last go before the arrival of horses?
