A new boardwalk for Morden Hall Park

the wetlands at Morden Hall Park

Morden Hall Park is very excited to announce the opening of our new boardwalk through our wetlands as part of a project to improve access to and understanding of this ecologically significant habitat.

Immerse yourself in the wetlands

Our new boardwalk has thrown open the wetlands at Morden Hall Park, allowing you to get nose to nose with some secretive wetland creatures. 

Our new boardwalk allows you to get up close and personal with wetland flora and fauna

Hidden gems

Come in to spot frogs, newts, and wetland birds from the viewing platform, or book your school group in to pond dip from the specially designed dipping platform. 

The rich wetland habitat will be enhanced as part of the boardwalk project, attracting even more species to an already wonderfully diverse corner of Morden Hall Park.

The viewing platform is a great way to see above the vegetation in the wetlands and spot some birds

Enjoy the peace

Take a break from the busy streets and spend some time relaxing in this unexpectedly tranquil space right next door to London’s tramlink.

Grab the chance to wander through the wetlands as you wend your way from Deen City Farm to the Potting Shed café and Morden Hall Park Garden Centre.

Open to everyone

We’re widening bridges as well as creating a two hundred metre boardwalk along the course of an existing gravel path to make this fascinating area easier for everyone to access. 

Paths from Kenley Road, Deen City Farm, Phipps Bridge tram stop and the car park all converge on the wetlands and the new boardwalk, making it straightforward to get to no matter how you’re arriving.

How to enjoy the wetlands

Dogs are welcome to enjoy the boardwalk with you, to make sure that wildlife and other boardwalk users feel secure we simply ask that dogs remain on leads.

To keep everyone safe, we ask you not to cycle on the new boardwalk. The boardwalk is not wide enough to allow for bikes and pedestrians to share the space and may be slippery, so please choose one of the other routes for your ride through the park.

Who we are working with

The boardwalk project forms part of the wider Heritage Lottery Fund supported by Living Wandle Landscape Partnership. Work is also being made possible due to kind support from Suez Communities Trust, Viridor Credits Environmental Company and the Landfill Communities Fund.

Our new dipping platform will be a great place for school children to learn about this diverse habitat
