Riverside

Southwark is a riverside borough, and one of the largest open spaces is the River Thames itself, forming the northern boundary of the borough. A sign posted riverside trail forms a walkway for both pedestrians and cyclists.

The Bankside Open Spaces Trust is funded to manage some parks and open spaces in the north of the Borough.

Local Nature Reserves

Local Nature Reserves in the borough are Dulwich Upper Wood, Lavender Pond, Nunhead Cemetery, One Tree Hill and Sydenham Hill Wood and Fern Bank.
