Sutcliffe Park 2





IntroductionEdit

Sutcliffe Park 1

A radical and realistic solution to flood prevention has created an amazing park on the Lewisham-Greenwich border in southeast London, transforming an unattractive area of open greenspace known as Harrow Fields. Sutcliffe Park has been purposely designed and landscaped to capture the aesthetic charm of wetlands. The site has got birding potential despite the lack of scrub and woodland habitats.
