  • Visitor Information

This much loved open space in the south London borough of Lambeth has two parts; the Victorian Grade II listed park and the park extension to the east, created in the 1960s. Kennington Park offers sports facilities, a cafe, playgrounds and a One O'Clock Club for the kids. You can book a tennis court or astro turf pitch (by calling Greenwich Leisure on 0845 130 8998), play ping pong at tables set up near the cafe, go skating at the skate bowl, and follow the fitness trail as well as signing up for special events like bat walks led by Lambeth's Parks Project Officer.
