Dog walking area
During the many years of work on the Northern Line Extension (NLE), the dog walking area transferred from the (north) Kennington Park Place end of the park (close to the war memorial) to an area along the boundary of the Astroturf tennis courts, by the path that leads to the Camberwell New Road.
Following the completion of the NLE work the dog walking area should be reinstated shortly, it has new fencing, new trees and grass sown. Benches and bins should be added shortly.
The Friends of Kennington Park have been chasing and chasing Lambeth Council to re open the area, the response was that the new turf and grass had to "be down" and dry out after the wet weather and there were various snagging issues which still have to be signed off. FOKP are on the case!
