Additional info

Blackheath Hill and the surrounding areas is perfect for walking because of the vast flat open spaces.

To the north of the heath, visitors may visit an attractive pond, known both as the Long Pond and the Folly Pond. You will often spot a heron standing by the water's edge. The pond is situated near the main gates of Greenwich Park.

There is a Bowling Green next to the pond area and a Cafe on the opposite side of the road.

Children can take donkey rides on the heath from Duke Humphrey Way. Rides are normally available during school holidays, bank holidays and at weekends from 10am to 5pm.
