Parks and open spaces in Greenwich

The Royal Borough of Greenwich has over fifty parks and open spaces within its boundaries. They include:

The Royal Arsenal Gardens is the most recent to be opened and occupies former industrial land.

The Green Chain, a linked series of linear and circular walks, include some of those open spaces within Greenwich. The Chain originates at three points along the River Thames and stretches to Crystal Palace Park.

Avery Hill Park is one of 11 parks throughout Greater London chosen to receive money for redevelopment by a public vote. The park received £400,000 towards better footpaths, more lighting, refurbished public toilets and new play areas for children.[1]
