Next Friends Walks and Events for 2022

History Walk, Sunday 21st August 2022, 2pm start from the front of the mansion (by the columns). How the park evolved from its earliest beginnings.

Fungal Foray with Mark Spencer, Sunday 23rd October 2022, 2pm Start from the front of the mansion. Search for species of fungi in the park, not for culinary or edible purposes but for identifying diversity.

Do bear in mind the parking charges at B.P. Park which range from 3 to 9 for 2 hours depending on car emission ratings. On street parking can be busy where available on Bromley roads and is restricted or prohibited on Lewisham roads.

Please check this page occasionally for any new events which are in the process of being arranged.

Sensory Garden Workdays continue but may be cancelled at short notice if guidelines require it or due to bad weather. We are running some workdays every two weeks. Email for details and to get on our workday mailing list.

Some events include periods of standing while looking at specimens and features. A typical walk around the park is about 2 or 3 miles.  Time taken can vary between 1 and 3 hours but people can leave an event whenever they like provided they can find their own way out of the park.
Officially the gates to the road into the park are closed at dusk, so if staying in the park after dark we advise people to park outside.

Sensory Garden   

The Sensory Garden is open and in use by park visitors.   The changing seasons will be reflected by the type of plants growing, in flower or seeding.   Friends volunteers are continuing to maintain the garden and plant new plants when necessary and suitable.  Regretably someone occasionally steals plants which volunteers have planted for the enjoyment of all park users.
If you want to join the volunteers just turn up on the dates and times above or contact us for more details. Even if you don't know anything about gardening this is a good place to start with the help of other volunteers.
