Lavender Pond was created in 1981 as part of the regeneration of the Surrey Commercial Docks and designated a local nature reserve in 2005, one of the oldest urban nature reserves in the country.

The original dock walls and locks remain alongside the old pumphouse. Covering 2.5 acres in total, ponds are the park’s main feature. Boardwalks lead through extensive stands of reed, a colourful marsh area and on to woodlands.

The park demonstrates creative ecology and conservation, showing how new habitats can be created for wildlife while allowing local people contact with nature through community involvement, education and training.
