Welcome

This is the website for Twinkle Park and Charlotte Turner Gardens: a pair of public green spaces located on the bend of the River Thames, in Deptford, South East London.

Thanks to a generous grant from the Veolia Environmental Trust, as well as support from the Royal Borough of Greenwich, Twinkle Park is currently undergoing some long-awaited work to restore the pond to its full, greeny-brown glory. The work was initially delayed due to an unexpected structure being discovered during excavation (thought to be a well, which probably caused the drainage in the first place). Work resumed at the beginning of July and was completed quickly, but then due to the extremely hot weather the pond was subsequently very slow filling up. This has again delayed the final phase of planting, after which we can remove the fences admire the pond unimpeded. This is on schedule to be completed by the beginning of October. The Trust has been very grateful of the continued support and understanding coming from the community, who are as eager to see the completion of the work as we are.
