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. 

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's happening in the park.

Update from Lambeth Council... 

Works for a new children's playground will  begin on 02 May 2023 and are expected to be completed by the summer. The playground will be closed during this time.


We have produced a handy map of other playgrounds you can use nearby, and further information about the new playground design can be found here

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 have 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.
