Gunnersbury Triangle, nature reserve

A green oasis created by intersecting railway lines, saved from development in the 1980s and managed by the London Wildlife Trust for wildlife and people. This wet woodland nature reserve is a haven for birds and small mammals, which take advantage of the sheltered birch and willow.

Haven for wildlife in the city

Walkways and footpaths help guide visitors around the ponds and acid grassland areas through this wild oasis in Chiswick. You can just wander round and enjoy the peace and beauty of it or become a volunteer, record the species you see and take part in events. Only guide dogs allowed. Admission is free.
