Explore Morden Hall Park on foot or by bike, with a dog, or out and about with the children and pushchair. There's a wonderful network of footpaths and cycling trails – why not get active and celebrate the great outdoors?

Follow the Wandle Trail

The park sits in the middle of the 14-mile (20km) Wandle Trail, which follows the route of the River Wandle from Croydon to Wandsworth. There are both walking and cycling routes which allow you to enjoy the heritage, flora and fauna of this typical chalk stream.

Find a map of the Trail on the Merton Council website.

Looking for a friendly place to bring your dog? Come along to Morden Hall Park where there’s 125 acres of beautiful parkland for you and your four-legged friend to explore.

Go orienteering

Add an extra challenge to your walk or run through Morden Halk Park and have a go at orienteering. Whether you're walking with family, exploring an area or going for a run, download the map and look for the 14 posts in the park. Your challenge is to find the quickest route to each of the posts.

The route has been created by Mole Valley Orienteering Club and you can download the map from their website or the Go Orienteering website.
