Green Spaces

On the Peninsula, 50 acres of land has been developed as parkland, restoring a sense of ecological balance to this once industrial site. The Greater London Agency, working with the Environment Agency, has really put the ‘green’ in Greenwich. A walk to North Greenwich station takes you through the Central Park. Irises, lavender and daffodils line the route in amongst the trees for a very pleasant commute or an evening stroll. The Lewisham Black Poplar has also been reintroduced into the area.

Ecology Park

The Ecology Park is a four-acre freshwater wetland site. The Park comprises two lakes and areas of beach, marsh, meadow and wet woodland, with a network of wooden boardwalks, bird hides and special features to attract wildlife. Nature has been given a helping hand in the Park by the sowing of meadow grassland and the use of mowing patterns that promote wild flowers, while the Thames foreshore has been enhanced to attract fish. The Village’s man-made lakes are linked to ponds, reedbeds and islets to attract estuarine birds and migrating species, while a ‘green corridor’ provides an ecological link from the riverbank to the far side of the Village.

Greenwich Yacht Club

Founded by a small group of Thames sailors in 1908, the Club has been in its present location, adjacent to Greenwich Millennium Village since 1999 and now has extensive moorings for vessels up to 12 metres in length. The Club, which is always on the lookout for new members, runs a programme of activities throughout the year including yachting, dinghy sailing, motor boating and rowing. There’s also a large clubhouse and bar overlooking the river plus a suite of event spaces, all of which can be hired for corporate and social gatherings. The Club also social open to members and non members.
