Woodberry Wetlands

by Sally Foster (follow)
A perfect place for pond dipping and exploring nature

After being closed to the public for almost 200 years, Woodberry Wetlands was opened in 2016 and is now a beautiful urban wetland nature reserve that your little ones will love to explore.

As one of London's Wildlife Trusts top visitor attractions, the Woodberry Wetlands is eleven hectares of of nature right in one of the most densely populated areas of London.

Located in Hackney, it is a home to a multitude of wildlife and it will give your children a chance to explore nature, and perhaps spot a bird, butterfly or bat out in the wild. With wetlands, woodland and meadow, there is enough wide open space to run around and engage in imagination play in a peaceful setting.

The park frequently runs children's workshops. These include nature story time, craft, wildlife discovery and more. See here for any upcoming events. The events run over the school holidays are coming to an end, but there are sure to be more in the future if you keep an eye out.

Another great aspect of the park is the Coal House Cafe. The cafe is open daily for breakfast and lunch, and serves both coffee and homemade and locally sourced food. The meals are healthy and delicious, and there is a great children's menu which includes eggs, beans, toast, toasties, fish sandwiches and milkshakes. They also have a roof terrace with views over the nature reserve.
