The Walthamstow Reservoirs in Waltham Forest, London are currently being transformed into a distinctive urban wetland nature reserve and centre for learning that is unprecedented in size in London. Opening in 2017, Walthamstow Wetlands will give visitors free access to the wildlife and industrial heritage of this urban oasis.

NEW School & Community Group art competition

We are inviting local schools and community groups to take part in the this exciting new art competition.  The winning entries will be displayed in the new visitor centre at Walthamstow Wetlands, one of the largest urban wetlands nature reserves in Europe!

An art installation is currently being developed as a centrepiece for the visitor centre. We are launching this competition to enable local school children and community groups to have their artwork displayed in the beautifully restored Engine House, where it will be viewed by large numbers of visitors.
