Residents of London could always go to Walthamstow Marshes to enjoy nature as in a real village. Now it will be even easier. In 2012, updating of the reserve was started, and now it is time for the public opening of the park. This will happen on Friday, October 20th. The 211-hectare site will become the largest urban wetland in Europe. This is a great place for representatives of wild fauna: swans, kestrels and geese. And industrial history dictates it an unusual aesthetics: old metal constructions and powder mills look majestic against the background of green plantations.
The Marine Corps House, built in 1894, was completely restored, including a fireplace. Now this building will play the role of a center, cafe and educational space for visitors. And given the extensive planting works, we are waiting for aesthetic changes. Wild grass will be replaced by rare types of flowers. Why go to the country? Fishing, walking and rest can be done here, 15 minutes from the center of London.
