Pond Dipping!

Greenwich Peninsula Ecology Park

6th April 2022 - 13th April 2022 : 10:00- 15:00

Discover the weird and wonderful creatures that live in the ponds - from dragonfly nymphs to leeches to shrimps!

2 drop-in guided pond dipping sessions on our pond dipping pontoon: 10am to 12 and 1pm to 3pm.

Suitable for about 5 year olds and above and no booking necessary. Younger children will need to be very closely supervised by an adult at all times due to deep water.

You can arrive any time within the session times. If busy, we may ask people to take turns. Sorry, we cannot accommodate playgroups or groups of more than 8 children. All children must be accompanied by an adult.


Wednesdays 6th April 2022  and 13th April 2022.  One day events from 10am until 3pm
