Second Brockwell Park shelter sabotaged

Vandalised shelter 1A second Brockwell Park shelter has been damaged in the space of a few weeks. The vandalism to the shelter on the path between Norwood Lodge and Herne Hill park gate is thought to have taken place over the weekend of 31st January / 1st February 2015. Eight panes of glass have gone completely and a further four have been damaged. The attack, which has been reported to the Metropolitan Police, comes only a few weeks after the tennis court public shelter was burned to the ground by arsonists.

Wasps close paddling pool

paddling poolLambeth Parks apologised to park users after Brockwell Park’s paddling pool was closed today – due to a wasps nest. The nest had been treated by Pest Control and they advised Lambeth that the facility should be kept closed in case the wasps were aggravated.

It is envisaged that the paddling pool will reopen on Tuesday 29th July.

Wet Play Area – dates for essential maintenance

paddling poolDear Park Users.

Lambeth Parks staff has advised that the paddling pool section of the wet play area will be out of action for essential maintenance work on Monday 14th July 2014, and every second Monday of each month until further notice.


The engineers are draining the tank to remove a build up of sludge and to ensure less breakdowns of the facility in future. A notice has also been placed on the gate to the wet play area.

Brockwell Park Wet Play Area – update

paddling poolApart from Wednesday 28th May, when it will be shut for essential maintenance, Brockwell Park’s Wet Play Area is now operational. Please note that routine maintenance to the Wet Play Area will take place once a month on a Monday, when the facility is less used. This is necessary to prevent the facility breaking down. For further information please contact me through Brockwell Park Community Partners. 

Many thanks

Paul Carter, Brockwell Park Manager.
