Take a walk in Ruskin Park

Named after the writer and artist John Ruskin, who lived in the area from 1823 until 1871, Ruskin Park is found on the borders between Camberwell, Brixton and Herne Hill in South London.

Officially opened to the public on 2nd February 1907, the park was designed by the famous Chief Officer of Parks at London County Council, Lt Colonel JJ Sexby, originally over 24 acres, with a further 12 acres added in 1910.

The modern park contains a bandstand, flower gardens, and ornamental and wildlife ponds, as well as a children's play area and other features.
