CANCELLED - Waterworks and Marshes Discovery
Join us for a walk to explore the filter beds and Hackney marshes taking in the Waterworks Centre nature reserve.
The Waterworks Centre nature reserve is a great place to either relax in our large open spaces or explore our nature reserve. See what you can spot in the wildlife garden, see the willow dome and head to the filter beds and bird watch from one of the largest bird hides in London.
After exploring the filter beds you will take a stroll around Hackney Marshes and will walk along the northern border of the Olympic Park. Following the watercourse back up to the Waterworks to finish back where the walk started. Why not pop over to the Ice Centre afterwards for a cup of tea in the Café.
