Nature lovers, walkers and families will love the tranquil woodlands of Thorndon North which surround the beautiful Childerditch pond and attract many migrant and over-wintering birds such as bramblings, siskins and redpolls. In spring, the woods fill with the scent and colour of bluebells and anemones.

The famous and much-loved Gruffalo trail also starts here. Pick up a trail in the Countryside Centre for a small price before you start, and enjoy a refreshing drink from the cafe when you've found all the characters. Please note, the Countryside Centre and cafe are closed during the November 2020 national lockdown and Gruffalo Trail maps will not be available.

The open parkland at Thorndon South is perfect for families and groups of friends to spread out and enjoy a picnic. Drink in views across countryside as far as Canary Wharf or fly a kite on one of its many hills and run free. Take one of the many walking trails and venture into the woodlands.

Picnics and dogs allowed, but BBQs are not allowed.

Open from 8am-dusk

The park is free to enter, although parking charges do apply.
