Open since 2004, Gunpowder Park has been reclaimed and regenerated from its former use as a Royal Ordnance munitions testing facility.
After 100 years as a closed site, it has been transformed, by Lee Valley Regional Park Authority, into a dynamic country park for the benefit of people, wildlife and the arts. The park is an ideal place for walkers and cyclists, with a comprehensive network of surfaced paths accessible in all weathers. There is also a permissive bridleway for summer use circling the Energy Fields.
Free of charge for use of open spaces.
