Discover a traditional coppiced woodland, hay meadows and a wildlife pond brimming with aquatic animal and plant life at Spring Park; a perfect day out during all seasons within the London Borough of Bromley.
Centuries of growing and extracting timber products has heavily influenced its appearance as an ancient coppice woodland. Today, it is an important remnant of a much larger wooded area and home to various wildlife including bluebells, woodland butterflies and small-leaved lime; a scarcely found tree species in southern England.
Spring Park is open all year round and easily reached by public transport and by car. There are two free car parks with limited spaces just off Addington Road.
