Sounds of an Underwater World

Greenwich Peninsula Ecology Park

14th April 2023 : 10am - 3pm

Have you ever wondered what it sounds like in the underwater world of a pond? Join conservation charity Froglife, sound artist Tom Fisher and the Greenwich Peninsula team for an interactive session of live streaming of the pond soundscapes.

This secret world of sound will be revealed and you’ll hear weird and wonderful noises, like plants photosynthesising and maybe even some frog tadpoles!


This event is a collaboration between Froglife and TCV as part of the London Blue Chain project. The project is being developed to enable Froglife and communities to create ponds and wildlife habitats along the Green Chain walking route. Come along to this event to find out about the range of activities, resources and events we’ll be working on and how you can become involved!

2 sessions at 10am to 12pm and 1pm to 3pm.

This event is for children aged 7 and above. This activity will take place in our outdoor classroom. No pre-booking required. All children must be accompanied by an adult.


The site has a visitor centre and toilets, including accessible toilet with baby changing facilities.
