South Norwood Country Park
Beautiful country park with lakes and hills to enjoy the views and wildlife. Just at the end of our road (left out of front door) then under bridge and entrance to park is either through the beautiful cemetery or further down via the entrance through the fence.
This place is extraordinary! Apparently it used to be a sewage facility - and they decommissioned it 20 years ago and turned it into this amazing reserve. There's a huge pond with ducks to feed and wild scrubland for wild birds, as well as kids playgrounds and football pitches. It's HUGE!
Beautiful nature reserve and park, perfect for a peaceful walk or a picnic in the sun
You would be mistaken when you go in there for thinking you're in the middle of the country. Check out the lake.
Large open heath park with wild flowers and a lake. Has a children's playground and picnic space.
