Welcome to The Friends of  Kennington Park


About the Friends

The Friends of Kennington Park is a voluntary organisation set up 20 years ago to improve the park. We became a registered charity in 2020. The park is run by Lambeth Council. The Friends work with Lambeth to help keep the park in good shape and bring improvements and new facilities for the ever-increasing number of visitors. 

Current planning & work in progress includes the restoration of the iconic skatebowl, updating the children's playground, modernising the toilet facilities and improving the drains and pathways.

It was our 20th birthday last year! And we'd love to make more friends!

Kennington Park is open seven days a week. The park gates are locked at dusk.


Check out our News & Events pages for upcoming events and to find out what is happening in the park.

Coming soon...

To mark the 175th anniversary of the Chartist Rally which took place in Kennington Park in 1848, we will be launching a Kennington Park Chartist Trail and Podcast on 10 April.
