New learning centre opens offering extra attraction for Greenwich Park visitors

The Royal Parks charity has unveiled a brand-new learning space in the heart of Greenwich Park to provide new outdoor learning opportunities for schools and community groups.

The Greenwich Park Learning Centre was designed and built with accessibility, sustainability, and the surrounding landscape in mind. The indoor learning space sits within a larger outdoor learning area which includes a learning canopy, nature trails, a dipping pond, and a wildlife meadow.

The nearby former Wildlife Centre building has also been transformed into a welcoming entrance with accessible toilet facilities.

The Royal Parks’ learning team is exploring options for a community public programme that can inspire communities local to Greenwich and beyond to connect with nature, heritage, and wellbeing.

Daniella Briscoe-Peaple, partnerships and engagement officer at Greenwich Park, said: “We’re thrilled to be opening the doors of the Learning Centre and welcoming everyone to this fantastic new education space for schools and community groups.

“We hope this space will inspire local groups to learn more about the park’s history and the natural landscape on their doorstep, and it will inspire people to discover and learn about their environment, particularly as we face the pressures of climate change.”

The new centre is close to the Ignatius Sancho Café, which opened in March and is named after the first known black Briton to have voted in an election.
