You can enter the woods via Chislehurst Road or the recreation ground, also by another footpath in the woods. There is a main path that takes you all around the wood and leads you back into the rec. However you can go further into the woods, where you will find lots of nature and very old trees. It is a nice place to walk your dog. The rest of the grounds are part of Poverest Park, where there are swings and climbing frames for the kids.
