(between Opal Street and Cottington Street)
The older children’s playground at Pedlars' Acre has been refurbished and there is some funding available to replace some of the play equipment in the younger children’s play area. A consultation document has been put on the fencing to Pedlars' Acre and in the reception area of the housing office at 91 Kennington Lane. If you have any questions about the proposed works please contact Caroline Fraser Landscape Architect Programme Manager on 020 7926 4266.
Lambeth Walk Doorstep Green
Final consultation is going on about installing children's play equipment at Lambeth Walk Doorstep Green. The plans are for three play areas - one in the corner adjacent to the Adventure Playground building, one adjacent to Fitzalan Street opposite the stables, and one adjacent to Lollard Street and the Ethelred Youth Club building, opposite the steps to the nursery. We can email you the plans, or for more information contact Callum Brown.
Lambeth High Street Recreation Ground (Old Paradise Gardens)
We're disappointed that the plans for the refurbishment of the park which were agreed more than a year ago have been delayed yet again. We've made it clear to officers that these continuing delays are unacceptable. The plans include a brand new water feature, improved entrances and sight lines. A meeting of the Friends of the park had been scheduled for the Wednesday 19 September.
Tyers Street Linear Park
Secretary of the Vauxhall Gardens Estate Residents & Tenants Association Chrys has been working hard on early plans for a linear park along Tyers Street. The steering group has started consultation, set up a website, commissioned early ideas, and created a video. We're now working to incorporate the plans into the overall masterplan for Vauxhall Pleasure Gardens.
The current ball game area, flanked by the Cotton Gardens Estate is to get a major facelift to transform it from a run down ball area, into a new safe and modern multi-sports space. It will benefit from new surfacing and multi purpose football and basketball goals and new fencing.
Additional adjacent space has also been earmarked for development into an environmentally friendly, green and sustainable playground haven for younger children. Newly installed play equipment and play features will be built using natural products. This was approved at the Planning Committee on 31 January.
Ballcourt next to Ward Point, Ethelred Estate
At the same time, work will also take place to raise the height of the fencing around the ball court next to Ward Point - an issue councillors have been raising since the ballcourt was installed a couple of years' ago.
