We regret to report that Brockwell Park was once again the target of vandalism across the Bank Holiday weekend.
On May Day we received reports of further smashed windows at the Community Greenhouses.
Nine window panes have been smashed to date by rocks being thrown deliberately over the Greenhouses fence.
The following day saw the Rosendale shelter facility vandalised.
An alert park user photographed three children, alleged to have caused the damage to the shelter, exiting the scene.
Later in the weekend a fire was lit in the ladies toilets by Brockwell Hall, which was stopped from spreading by alert contractors. Three panes of glass in the men’s toilets were smashed and there has also been excessive damage to park noticeboards.
All of this follows arson at the tennis court shelter and vandalism to the shelter between Norwood Road and Herne Hill earlier in the year.
If you have any information on these incidents, please report to the police.
If you see anti social behaviour in the Park, you can:
- Phone the Police. 101 for non-emergency situations; 999 for emergencies
- Phone Lambeth Council on 020 7926 4000
- Email Brockwell Park Watch at firstname.lastname@example.org
Please make a note of the date, time and description of any suspicious activity but do not intervene directly.
