You can leave your real Christmas tree at Mountsfield Park – George Lane entrance – SE6 1AN.
Thanks to Lewisham Council and Glendale, the Christmas trees are converted to mulch – perfect for trees in parks and street trees across the Borough!
We use a lot of the recycled Christmas trees to mulch the newly planted avenue trees at Mountsfield Park.

It’s Jon Hooker’s last day tomorrow, Mon 30th March, as our park keeper. We haven’t been offered a full time replacement but have been offered the Manor House Gardens park keeper 2 days per week on Monday and Friday.
Glendale/ Lewisham Proposed Mountsfield Park and Manor House Garden park keeper rota from the beginning of April 2015

Contractors are back at Mountsfield Park play area retrofitting drainage/ land drains to reduce the quantity of standing water, so that the Lewisham Council can reopen the play space. Mountsfield Park play area has been closed for 6 months (approx). The new sand play area hasn’t been included during current drainage works, which will mean that it will be soggy during wetter months. Will the drainage swale be retained within the the play area?
