London Rivers Week 2024: Guided walk around Chinbrook Meadows

June 22 @ 11:00 am - 2:00 pm

In celebration of London Rivers Week 2024 (‘London is a river city’), join our friendly guides for a walk around the newly excavated wetland where we’ll explore the different species of flora and fauna that you can expect to find here. We’ll delve into the different insects, birds and mammals that call these habitats home and look at the ponds we have created to help our water-dwelling wildlife. Expect to learn about the importance of urban constructed wetlands for improving wellbeing, water quality and flood protection.

This is a gentle walk around the reserve on both paths and grass – there may be some gentle inclines, strong stout footwear recommended. The walk will last approximately 1 hour and will be fully outdoors – so dress for the weather! We will then stop for tea and coffee before completing some monitoring.

Getting here:

  • Parking is available on Amblecote Road.
  • Site is a 10-minute walk from Grove Park station.
  • The park is serviced by bus routes 124, 126, 273, 624.
  • What3words location is: free.indoor.larger

This walk is for over 18s and young people over 12 (accompanied by an adult).
