We went to see In the Night Garden Live in Blackheath, south London at the weekend (review coming soon). Before the show and afterwards we had a run (literally for the little ones) around Greenwich Park. I used to go there a lot when I lived in Greenwich but it was a different experience seeing it through child’s eyes.
We stretched our legs along the avenue of trees, climbed onto water fountains and got ice-creams.
We marvelled at the view across to the Maritime Museum and Canary Wharf and at Queen Elizabeth I’s oak tree.
We posed for photos next to ancient walls and trees and got shoulder carries.
We stood on the Meridian Line.
Lastly, we found the amazing playground with so many different play areas, a natural climbing area with logs, tunnels made from plants and canes, play houses and a huge sandpit.
It was just enough to tire the girls out before the journey home.
Greenwich Park, Greenwich, London, SE10 8QY
The park is well-served by bus routes and is within walking distance of Blackheath, Greenwich and Maze Hill railway stations, Cutty Sark and Greenwich DLR stations, Greenwich Pier riverboat stop and a bus-ride from North Greenwich tube station. We drove and there is plenty of Pay & Display parking in the park and on surrounding streets.
