About the Friends

Who we are

The Friends of Kennington Park is a charity made up of local people who are passionate about the park.

Our aims

Our goals are:


  • to make the park the best it can be so it enriches peoples’ lives

  • to enthuse people about its past, present and future

  • to encourage people to respect the park and other park users


We do this by:


  • lobbying Lambeth council to ensure the park and its facilities are properly maintained

  • raising funds from charities and other groups to pay for new park facilities

  • listening to – and responding to - park users

  • representing the park in Lambeth’s strategic planning

  • monitoring events in the park

  • publishing a regular newsletter to keep people informed of latest events


We can only do this with your help, ideas, energy and financial support.
