Who We Are
The award-winning Lee Valley Regional Park stretches an incredible 26 miles along the leafy banks of the River Lee, from Ware in Hertfordshire, through Essex, to the Thames at East India Dock Basin. The park provides a unique 'natural' corridor on London’s doorstep and provides a vital refuge for wildlife. It contains a variety of landscapes and open spaces to enjoy including the internationally important wetland sites that form the Lee Valley Special Protection Area and Ramsar site, Sites of Special Scientific Interest, industrial heritage sites and nature reserves.
Overview of the Open Spaces Team

With an abundance of practical works, wildlife surveys, volunteering task, visitor interaction and Park promotion to undertake each year there are many opportunities to develop the conservation value and engagement with sites throughout the Park but also many opportunities for personal development as an individual.
