The Penge and Cator Parks Walk
Sunday 27 June 2021
10:00 to 13:00
Date and time: Sunday 27th June 2021, 10am
Location: Meet at Royston Field entrance by Sainsburys car park
The idea for the walking route came about as something to celebrate the tenth anniversary of the Friends of Winsford Gardens (aka Penge Green Gym) who began life in 2011 under the auspices of BTCV (now The Conservation Volunteers). The Group is now an established Friends Group and member of the Friends Forum of Bromley Parks and Green Spaces. In 2021, five of the parks and open spaces the route passes through have Friends Groups who help to look after and maintain them.
The walk takes you around the centre of Penge, with the High Street in the middle, but attempts to keep you off the main thoroughfares as much as possible. It takes you through each of the park areas which have their individual attractions. The description does not dwell too much on the historical or other aspects of the sites, details of some of which can be found in the splendid Penge Heritage Trail leaflet or in greater detail on their website - www.pengeheritagetrail.org.uk.
