Welcome to Kennington Park


London’s parks and green spaces are crucial for exercise and mental wellbeing. To stop the spread of COVID-19, the Mayor of London asks that you must continue to follow the Government’s rules on social distancing.

From Saturday 4 July 2020 there is a further relaxation of the Covid-19 lockdown rules:

  • Social distancing guidance changes to "one metre plus", so where it is not possible to stay 2m apart, please try to remain at least 1m apart plus mitigations to reduce the risk of virus transmission;

  • The children's playground will re-open, but please ensure good hygiene, cleansing hands regularly and avoid face touching;

  • Outdoor gym equipment can be used again, but please ensure good hygiene, wiping down equipment after use;

  • Meet ups in groups of up to 2 households, indoors and outdoors are now allowed again. It doesn't have to always be the same household.

  • When outside you can continue to meet up with up to 6 people from different households whilst maintaining social distancing.

  • It will be against the law to gather in groups larger than 30 people, except for a limited set of circumstances to be set out in law;

  • 8 portaloos and 1 baby's changing room are located near the picnic area and park cafe;

  • Please remember that social distancing is still essential

  • Please help to keep the park tidy
