Welcome to our Tiny Forest

Southmere Park's Tiny Forest is the first planted in the Thamesmead area. It is part of the Thamesmead Making Space for Nature and CLEVER Cities programmes; a partnership between Peabody, the Mayor of London and Groundwork. The Tiny Forest was designed by members of the local community, it is an amphitheatre shape with seating that overlooks the lake.
