"The Rose Garden" Greenwich Royal Park Tip by Claudilla

Greenwich Royal Park, Greenwich: 22 reviews and 48 photos


Made in the 1990's, is a part in the southern section of the Park, next to the Blackheath entrance.
Flowers are blossoming in springtime and I really liked the circular beds of flowers..and perhaps Zeno loved them more. He was very respctful of the flowers and just loved running around them with his little friends.
A small area is dedicated to deers, and you can quietly try to spot them from a couple of observation points between some bushes. The way to the bushes, is an enjoyable walk, a bit of change if compared to the open spaces of the park.
The rose garden is closed to dogs, and although I love them, I think flowers can be preserved more easily and ducks/birds are more relaxed in approaching humans.
Mind that if you drop a pice of your sandwich a squirrel will quickly get hold of it !
It will not be there long ! Squirrels are very domesticated and friendly in this part of the park.

Address: From Blackheath gate
Directions: From Blackheath gate entrance, turn right and enter a small black gate
