Lavender Pond Nature Park


Lavender Pond Nature Park was created in 1981 with the aim of providing a haven for wildlife, an amenity for local residents and an educational resource.

Despite covering only 2.5 acres, the Park Features a variety of habitats each with characteristics communities of plants and animals. Some areas are left as undisturbed as possible, while others are heavily used by schoolchildren and other visitors. A system of wooden boardwalks enables people to see the plants and animals at close quarters without trampling the vegetation.

Wheelchair users can also gain access from both Salter Road and Rotherhithe Street.
