Dear park users
We have been advised by Lambeth Parks that the Brockwell Park Paddling Pool (wet play/water play area) will be turned off for at least one week from 5pm today, Friday 9th August, for emergency repairs.
The sand filters which allow the water to drain away have become blocked over the summer, so these need to be cleaned and replaced. The blocked filters are causing water to build up in the area and over the last week contractors have used mobile pumps to clear away standing water.
The repairs are required immediately, so that the filter system works efficiently to prevent bacteria and keep the water clean and safe to use by local people. Lambeth Parks will work with the contractors to make sure that the repairs are completed to this popular facility as soon as possible.
