Sutcliffe Park and The Quaggy



Sutcliffe Park and The Quaggy

South East London's greenest flood defence.

Location: Meadowside, Eltham

Description: This large, tree-lined Nature Reserve/park in the western part of Eltham comprises spectacular grassland, meadow, and wetland. Expect to see nature up close and personal such as dragonflies, damselflies, herons, geese, little egrets, kingfishers and reed warblers.

The once lost River Quaggy has now been uncovered and now floods the wetlands and meanders through the 35-acre site. The park was created to form as a flood defence for those areas further downstream. In the event of a Met Office flood warning, the inner part of the park will be closed until the flood risk subsides.

There are also sports facilities too including an atheltics track (home of the Blackheath Harriers), tennis courts, and bowling green.

Sutcliffe Park was named after a former Borough Engineer of Woolwich Borough Council.
