Picnic Power

The Independent newspaper has named the Russia Dock Woodland as one of the Best 50 Picnic Spots to visit in its urban category. Here's what they say about us:

This long, thin park in Rotherhithe was formed in 1980 when a former dock (which was originally used for importing timber fromNorway, Russia and Sweden – hence the name) was infilled and planted as a 35-acre woodland. An artificial hill, Stave Hill, was later added and it's now a popular picnic spot for those in the know.

Getting there: the closest Tube station is Canada Water, with open access.

It is really rather nice to know that we have made it into the nationals! Thanks very much to Mike Scott for spreading the good news.
