Den Building

Greenwich Peninsula Ecology Park

5th August 2016 : 11am - 3pm

Just because you live in a city doesn't mean you can't make dens!

Make your own den from willow poles, stems and natural materials. Design and make your own mud painted banner to proudly display at the top of your den. Suitable for approx. 6 years and above as you need to hold poles in place and tie knots in string – adult and teenager help much appreciated!

11am-3pm :  ongoing all day – drop in anytime but, if coming later, turn up by 2pm to have time to make a den.


Dress for the weather

The site has a small visitor centre and toilets. There will be quiz trails and colouring available on site. There is no café on site but a shop and café are nearby in Millenium Village Oval Square.
