South-East London Hiking trails

Looking for a great activity where you can enjoy some fresh air with the family and get some great excercise?  In South East London check out Westminster Ponds Walking Trails or Meadowlily Woods. Two great spots in the South East end.                                                                                      

Westminster Pond Walking Trails 

One of the largest Natural Areas in London. Comprised of 300 hectares covering an area 3 km long and almost 1.5 km in width. There are six major ponds and a number of smaller ones scattered throughout the area. This area is significant as it possesses such a rich variety of natural habitats in a relatively undisturbed state.  Even being surrounded by major urban centre this marsh, swamp and bog complex is a Class 1 provincially significant wetland.  There are several different maintained paths showcasing this scenic pond, particularly in the fall when the red leaves of the maples and the yellow needles of the Tamaracks are reflected in the water. 

 

Meadowlily Woods

An Environmentally Significant Area is located in east London near Commissioners Road and Meadowlily Road, east of Highbury Avenue. The Meadowlily Bridge at the foot of Meadowlily Road provides pedestrian access to the ESA from the Thames Valley Parkway trail system.  This "little gem" had all kinds of species at risk and specialized plants, birds and animals. Unique views and vistas of the Thames River Valley here in Southeast London: Park Farm Heritage-Designated Homestead, 1849, Meadowlily-Plewes Mill Ruins, 1850 & Meadowlily Bridge, 1910. There are also wonderful walking and hiking trails.
