Walks and Events

Following the winding up of the  Friends group as we cannot recruit sufficient committee members any future events may be organised through and the email address linked there.

The Friends group ran a series of walks and events during their years of operation 1995 to 2023. the back copies of the newsletters in the newsletter archive page will show the  range of events such  as themed guided walks on various subjects, botany, bats, insects, local  history  etc.

A visitor centre run by volunteers ran from 1997 to 2022 when it was closed as the premises had to be  vacated for RJK properties. 

Volunteers did some woodland management work and also maintained the Sensory Garden.

Sensory Garden workdays under the Friends of Beckenham Place Park have ceased as the Friends group has been wound up.  Maintenance of the Sensory Garden will now  be undertaken by London Borough of Lewisham or volunteers organised by the  park ranger.
