In August 2019 Lewisham Green Scene awarded Mountsfield Park with 5 new entrance noticeboard signs and other improvements including fox-proof bins. The new entrance signs will replace the existing rusting entrance signs. Friends of Mountsfield Park (FoMP) have developed this map design for the entrance signs. If you would like to comment on this map design please contact email@example.com. The funding for the new Mountsfield Park entrance signs is Section 106.
Delighted that one of our oaks has been verified as a veteran oak – check the @WoodlandTrust Ancient Tree Inventory https://ati.woodlandtrust.org.uk/ and add more ancient, veteran and notable trees when you see them so that they can be protected and cherished by future generations of people and for the benefit of biodiversity and also to reduce the effects of the climate emergency.
Is this the only veteran tree in the Catford / Hither Green area?
“There will be summer holidays toilet provision 7 days a week minimum 9am to 3pm. With a keeper present this will be extended to 10am to 5pm. I have been this morning and both toilets are open and available, with appropriate signage including opening times, Best wishes, Darren” Contact Glendale for more information…
We lost another of our trees at Mountsfield Park last weekend. It was quite breezy at the time with a moderate prevailing wind. When the 20m tree fell over on Saturday evening one person was injured.
Fallen lime tree at Mountsfield Park June 2020. Root disturbance and changes to soil levels during the transition from bowls green to community garden in 2014 might be partly responsible for the decline of this tree and 2 neighbouring lime trees.
