Perhaps one of London's loveliest leafy expanses, Brockwell Park has become a real favourite with locals. Often termed "Brixton's Beach", the park is remarkable for its large Brockwell Lido, now one of the few remaining outdoor swimming pools in London. It is an ideal place to take a dip in the summer and catch some rays. There is also a safe paddling pool for the smaller tots to splash around in. In 2003, a meticulously built miniature railway was opened. Kids can jump aboard and explore the park for just a pound. Both this and the lido are only open in summer months. There are also six public tennis courts. Brockwell Hall is a handsome Regency lodge occupying the park heights. Many a scone can be consumed here in the suitably twee tea-room. The shaded arbour in the English walled garden is also a blissful place to catch your breath and watch the world go by.
