Very disappointing and a little run down. The park is aimed mainly at children with a host of activities geared towards them. However most of the children tend to treat the centre as a play park rather than respect the wildlife that surrounds them, which may have also been the reason why there was very little to see. I would recommend that for anyone really interested in wildlife and nature to visit the Wetland Centre in Barnes. But experience it for yourself and make your own judgement.

Given the amount of ugly redevelopment in the area this ecology park is a blessing and a tragic attempt at ensuring that we are not completely cut off from the natural world. The place offers peace and tranquillity and layers of natural beauty and interest just waiting to be discovered. Well maintained and cared for the place is a pleasure to visit.
