This is the most family-friendly route from Norwood Lakes to the Thames Path I've been able to find. If you turn right when you get to the Thames you can come back on the Waterlink Way; left and you can come back on the Wandle Trail or Quietway 5.
A quiet streets route between Grangewood Park and Norbury Park. Please take care crossing Grange Road and Green Lane. Virginia Road tends to attract a few idiotic drivers so be careful there too.
Family friendly route from South Norwood Lakes to Crystal Palace Park and back.
