Here we are!
If you would like to visit the garden we are located as at the location above. We are off Wood Street, Walthamstow, London E17 - the nearest British Rail Station is Wood Street as shown on the map.
Please note: We are unpaid volunteers and the garden is generally open on weekends to the public over the warmer months from April to the end of October.

YOU can Join The Friends Group too!
The Friends of Greenway Avenue Community Play Garden was established in 2012 following an approach by the Local Authority and our decision to save an unloved and derelict site in the local area.
We set ourselves up with the purpose of not only progressing and developing the site but also to offer a sense of guardianship and care and to make sure that we take full advantage as a community of this valuable community asset and to realise that full benefit.
We are always looking to reach out to other members of the local community who feel they may be able to carry forward those aims and add value to the garden.
Alternatively, you might be seeking some good healthy exercise and fresh air in the outdoors.
There are also plenty of new people who you might want to meet - even your neighbours!
Or....you might just want to join for the benefits.
Just some of the benefits of membership to the Friends Group includes:
- Full access to the garden at any time.
- Invitations to a regular schedule of events including planting days.
- Invitations to other Members-only events.
- A free quarterly email newsletter
This is before we get into discussion about the physical and mental benefits, the increased community and the potential for learning and development!
Membership currently is a very reasonable £10 per household per annum and this money goes directly toward the upkeep and maintenance of the garden for use by all.
If you would like to join you can get in touch with us via the email address listed above.
