Cross Woolwich Road and walk down Anchor & Hope Lane, turn right at the end onto to the Thames Path, walk to the Barrier (either walking through the tunnel towards the cafe or turning right just before the steps) and turn right walking through Barrier Gardens. At the pedestrian crossing on Woolwich Road cross and enter Maryon Park, walk through to the steep flight of steps the other side of the flat grassy area, walk up them and continue through to Woodland Terrance, cross over into Maryon Wilson Park.
