I grew up around here as a child. I remember when the adventure playground was there as me and my brother would spend hours there. There are dinosaur statues there should children want to see them. There is also a maze to explore.

Really relaxing or much walking as it's so large. My grandchildren really loved the playground and made many friends. A great place also for relaxing and parking is so simple.

Considering the rich and beautiful history of this park, it seems quite poorly maintained and dull. Bit worn looking- we went on a sunny day too!

There are many places in the park where there isn’t a building in sight. This wonderful expanse of green and many trees is a great resource for South London. It contains the national sports centre - so useful if you play squash or badminton. The...More
