Twinkle Park Summer Festival, Sunday 9th June

Twinkle Park, down near the river on Borthwick Street, is a little park with a large pond, wild-life gardens, gazebo, and a mosaic floor compass made by Greenwich Mural Workshop, designed with local residents. It has been re-awarded the Green Pennant award 2012-13 after first winning it in 2008-09 – for being a high quality green space managed by a community group. The Twinkle Park Trust also manages Charlotte Turner Gardens.

On Sunday June 9th (1-6pm), it's their annual Summer Festival which will feature reggae vibes from DJ Stormy, steel pan band the Heart of Steel Orchestra, children's mask making with Arty Party, Extra Bones' "Draw and be Drawn" portrait club, refreshments from Horse Powered and Pimms O'Clock, and finishing with Paul Zec Jazz Quintet. Bring a picnic and a rug...

...and if you haven't visited this part of Deptford for a while, you may be shocked to see the almost complete Paynes & Borthwick development which now looms over the area.

Twinkle Park is just one of the Greenwich parks taking part in Parksfest2013
