The Friends of Burgess Park are an association of people and other interested groups who are concerned to protect, promote and enhance an important, inner-city London park. We want the park protected from inappropriate development, inappropriate use and with high regard for protecting the environment and ecology.
We monitor the park boundaries and lobby against development which would reduce the area of the park. As regular users of the park we observe park management and maintenance, and campaign for best practice.
Over the years the Friends have extended their reach and involvement as the political and social landscapes have changed. We put on events in the park and became involved with other local organisations and businesses to help with funding.
Government and Council budget reductions mean we have to find new ways of finding funds to continue to care for the park. To do this we liaise closely with Lambeth and all parties with an interest in the park..
There you can find playground with water play, The Little Cat Cafe, wildlife area, picnic area, tennis courts, allweather football pitch, children’s centre available for birthday party hire, dog exercise area, basketball practice area, community greenhouse and toilets.
It has been proved that people who live near open spaces are happier and healthier, so we want to make the most of that.
