Update on the Playground!
Press Release from Lambeth - New Playground for Kennington Park
17 April 2023
New Playground for Kennington Park
This year will see the delivery of a new children’s playground for Kennington Park, as well as a range of other improvements to the park, including repairs to the skatepark, new drinking fountains and repairs to paths and drainage. The plan is to provide a refresh of the park with safe, modern, user friendly, low maintenance facilities.
After months of planning a contractor has been appointed to install the playground. The new playground will cater for children from toddlers to 12 years old. The complete area will be transformed to include zones with age-appropriate equipment, a refreshed wildlife area, and a wide range of play equipment to provide active play, socialising, as well as learning opportunities across the age ranges. There will be areas for quieter activity and areas to picnic. Overall, a place that will be safe, fun, exciting to visit.
The works to the playground are expected to start in May and the playground will be closed for 10-12 weeks while the works are carried out. Nearby toddler play is available in St. Marks Church grounds and Vauxhall Park caters for all ages.
