Greenwich Peninsula Ecology Park (GPEP) was created as part of the redevelopment of Greenwich Peninsula in the build up to the Millennium. The original planning for the park can be seen in the Management Plan of the Greenwich Peninsula. It was opened to the public in 2002 and acts as an excellent source for biological diversity and environmental education. It was created to act as a strong point for wildlife and provide an environmental balance to development occurring on the Peninsula.
The Park is a great place to learn about ecology and observe the local wildlife of the Peninsula. Using a system of boardwalks and bird hides visitors are able to observe the wildlife of the Peninsula in unmatched quality.
If you are looking for volunteering opportunities or educational visits for children and schools the Park provides ample opportunities. There are two weekly Practical Conservation Workdays that anyone can come along to, see flyer below.
Opening Times: Wednesday-Sunday from 10am – 5pm
Although please check their website in case of any amendments to workdays or opening times
