South London Strolls

Greenwich Park

Located in the heart of Deptford, Deptford Foundry is our collection of 276 beautiful homes embodying the very best of South East London.

Homeowners benefit from independent shops, contemporary pubs and excellent transport links on their doorstep, as well as ample parks and outdoor space.

As we all spend more time in our local areas, if you’re a resident of Deptford then we’ve picked out our top spots to stretch your legs and get some fresh air:

 

Deptford Park

Located just a 15-minute walk from Deptford Foundry, Deptford Park is ideal for a quick lunch break stroll. The park dates back to 1884 and was originally a market garden before being sold to London County Council and then opening as a public park in 1897. There is plenty of seating, so be sure to grab a coffee or sandwich en-route to enjoy in the park. If you are feeling more energetic, the 17 acres park offers plenty of space for a jog or a run.

 

Southwark Park

Southwark Park is an idyllic slice of heaven in an otherwise bustling area of South London. Covering 25 hectares, visitors can enjoy a leisurely stroll around the boating lake and duck pond, explore the wildlife garden or stop and smell the roses at the Ada Salter rose garden, built in 1936 by Alfred Salter, MP for West Bermondsey, for his wife. There’s also a café, bowling green, sports fields and tennis courts.

 

Greenwich Park

Another of London’s most famous parks, Greenwich Park spans over 183 acres with lots of space to explore along with some spectacular views of London. The iconic park is also home to the Prime Meridian, which has served as the reference point for Greenwich Mean Time since 1884, as well as The Royal Observatory. Also, not to be missed is The Wilderness Deer Park, London’s oldest deer park home to red and fallow deer.

 

Surrey Quays

When strolling around Surrey Quays, it’s easy to feel as though you’re not in London. The docks have long been a hub for trade activities, dating back to the late 1600s, but suffered severe damage during World War II and were subsequently closed. During the 1980s, they were redeveloped into residential areas and renamed Surrey Quays. The new Surrey Quays now include South Dock and Greenland Dock, both lined with sailing boats and yachts. There’s also a sailing club and water sports centre for those looking to take to the water!
