Really pretty park with lovely walks and scenery close to Eltham palace and shops.
I love to come here on a Sunday cos its really peaceful and quiet!
This is a wonderful place to visit in Eltham, very close to Eltham Palace and just down the road from the old army barracks. This is a tranquil little haven for wildlife, trees and fauna. There are many squirrels which will actually come up and take food from your hand they have become so tame. There are many wild fowl including ducks and swans and there is an island in the middle of the little lake which is famous for toads. There are little bridges back and forth over the water and it really is an idillyic place to take the children or to go for a romantic stroll. It is kept by Greenwich parks this is from their website and I quote......
A beautiful landscaped garden and lake with interesting wild fowl. Many original features have been retained from the 1930s. There is also a picnic area and an 18th Century ice well.
The ice well served as a storage area for ice, to be used by the kitchen staff at Eltham Palace.
I have enjoyed many an afternoon out with my kids here and have taken some wonderful photos. It is fully accessible to wheelchairs however there are some very steep slopes, there are no toilet facilities on site for anyone. Worth a visit, take some nuts for the squirrels and bread for the ducks, sit on a bench and watch the world go by, next to the Green chain walk, easy parking nearby.
