Guided tree walk in one London’s most famous parks

Join London Wildlife Trust for a guided walk of Crystal Palace Park and delve into the ancient woodland history of the Great North Wood. As a relic of the Great North Wood, Crystal Palace Park has a rich natural and cultural history. It was Penge Common until 1827, a 500 acre common with ancient woodland and grassland that took in Anerley

Penge is a Celt word meaning ‘the end of the wood’

The oak tree is the symbol of the Great North Wood and many can be found at Crystal Palace

There are also a number of non-native, ornamental trees which tell a story of their own about the history of the park

Where: Crystal Palace rail station, Crystal Palace Park, Crystal Palace
When: Saturday 27th February 2016, 11am-12.30pm
Cost: Free

  1. It was a very nice and full of experience tree walk! Huge “thank you” to the guide. I think it is a fair point of thinking in the same direction to organize more walks like this one for the future!
