Wander Southwark Park

First opened in 1869, Southwark Park is a 63 acre park in Rotherhithe, South East London.

The park stretches from the Thames to the North to nearly as far as Greenland Dock and has a cafe and a bandstand, built in 1884 and was originally sited in the Royal Horticultural Society grounds at South Kensington.

The park is also brim-full of sporting amenities, with an athletics track, a bowling green (open April - September), football pitches (August - March) and tennis courts.

There is a Friends of Southwark Park group and a Young Friends of Southwark Park group to enable the community to get involved in the management of their park.
