    Accident in Greenwich Park?

    A former hunting park, Greenwich Park is one of south-east London’s largest singular green spaces.

    Greenwich Park attractions

    The park’s attractions include what is believed to be the remains of a Romano-Celtic temple most likely to have been used between AD 43 and approximately AD 410, Britain’s Roman period; the Queen’s Orchard, an enclosed 0.3 hectare area used to grow vegetables and fruit in the park’s north-eastern corner, and the 200 metre long, largest herbaceous border in London.

    Sports at Greenwich Park

    Sporting facilities offered include tennis, cricket and areas suitable for informal fun with footballs, Frisbees, and so on. Grass areas and paths are predominantly used for running, jogging and walking, while cyclists are catered for by designated cycle paths.

    Other Greenwich Park facilities

    In addition to the above mentioned attractions, facilities and stunning East London views, Greenwich Park is also home to the Pavilion Café, the coffee Cabin and White House Bakery. Between these establishments, visitors can find an array of delicious snacks, cakes and sandwiches; hot breakfasts, pastries and salads; lunches, hot and cold drinks and more. The park is also in close proximity to the Royal Observatory, Greenwich Village and other local attractions.

    Slips, trips and falls

    With so much to see and do, it is only natural that accidents occur once in a while. Such accidents may involve injuries by tripping, slipping or falling, and every now and then, a cyclist using the road may be involved in a traffic accident. Other incidents may involve running or jogging accidents; scalding or burning injuries in one of the cafes, or tennis, cricket or other sporting accidents.

    Greenwich Park slip injuries

    During the summer months, slipping accidents are typically caused by spills; dropped food items or wet floors due to cleaning or rain. Occasionally, paths and grass areas may be wet and slippery due to rain or watering. In winter, there is obviously also the risk of ice/ snow causing visitors to be injured by slipping.

    Tripping accidents

    Although the park is very well maintained, sometimes a pothole may appear and present visitors with the risk of being injured by tripping. The occasional mole hill or rabbit hole in the grassy areas may cause trip injuries, as can packages, bags and other obstacles left on floors within the bakery or cafes.

    Public liability claims

    If you were injured in Greenwich Park, call Accident Advice Helpline to learn if you are entitled to claim for personal injury compensation.
