Welcome to The Friends of  Kennington Park


About the Friends

The Friends of Kennington Park is a voluntary organisation set up over 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. 

We would love to make more friends! Would you like to join us? Click here to get involved and really make a difference!


Kennington Park is open seven days a week. The park closes at dusk. 

Check out our News & Events pages to find out what's happening in the park.


Park closing times:

As of November 2023, although the park is officially closed after dusk, the gates will no longer be locked as part of a 9-month trial by Lambeth Council to save money.

Take part in the Kennington Park Chartist Trail! 

To mark the 175th anniversary of the Monster Chartist Rally on Kennington Common in April 1848, we launched a Kennington Park Chartist Trail. Further details are available here on how to take part in the trail or to listen to the podcast from the comfort of your home.

Or just head down to the park and follow the signs which begin at the war memorial.
