Dulwich Park oak tree - D. Greenwood

A guided walk looking at the trees of Dulwich Park in partnership with the Dulwich Society and Southwark Council

Dulwich Park is a remnant of the ancient Dulwich Common. Before becoming a park in 1890 it was farmland close to where the River Effra, one of London's most well known lost rivers, flowed. Though the park is nearing 130 years of age, it has trees which are much older.

There are a number of old boundary oak trees which mark former parcels of farmland and common land. We will be looking closely at these trees, talking about their significance to us today as relicts of London's natural and cultural heritage.

Dulwich Park is host to a great variety of trees and we will attempt to identify and discover the stories of as many of the species as we can.
