Charlton Park

Charlton Park
Charlton Park is one of Greenwich's Green Flag Award-winning sites.

The large, level, open and grassy park boasts Charlton House to the west of the site. It's one of the finest remaining examples of Jacobean architecture. The house is home to the Mulberry Tea Rooms. Around the house is an array of gardens. One of these, known as the sensory garden, specifically focuses on plants that can be appreciated by people with visual or physical disabilities.

The east side of the park caters for sports and fitness. There are football pitches and a floodlit grass training area with changing facilities for hire. There is also a cricket pitch which is used by Blackheath Cricket Club.

There is free to use outdoor gym equipment and table tennis tables, along with a children's playground, skate park and nearby refreshment facilities.
