visits. At the top of the hill within the park stands Brockwell Hall.
Whilst competing against multiple demands from a broad range of other interests, the entirety of Brockwell Park is a Site of Importance for Nature Conservation (SINC) of Borough Importance (Grade I), with mature trees including ancient oaks, substantial lawn areas set to meadow, and a series of lakes. As well as adding to the landscape value, these support a variety of birds, and bats including Pipistrelles, with frequent visits from rarer species like Daubentons, Noctule, Leisler's and Serotine bat.
The Park is listed for its heritage value on The National Heritage List for England, Parks & Gardens, Grade II. Noted for its nineteenth-century layout as a gracious public park, the clocktower, water garden, JJ Sexby-designed walled garden and other monuments, the park provides a pleasant exploration with links to its eighteenth-century agricultural past in the hedge lines, and mature oak trees. The model village houses outside the walled garden were originally donated to London County Council by Edgar Wilson in 1943.
The Brockwell Lido, a Grade II listed art deco building near the top of the park, is an open-air swimming pool popular with swimmers and bathers. Its attached café/restaurant is also popular. Other amenities in Brockwell Park include tennis courts, a bowling green, a BMX track and a miniature railway.
Brockwell Park is open from 7.30am to 15 minutes before sunset every day.
Brockwell Park Walled Garden Reviews
It's quintessentially English with vegetable plots, wild flowers and even a herb garden in its midst. A portly, retired Jamaican, wearing a huge colourful beany attends to the thirsty plants almost... more »
The walled garden is tucked away in Brockwell Park and is a stunning garden full of shrubs and flowers. Well worth a visit if you are nearby! more »
Great for a run, walk, or cycle. The cafe is a lovely stop, however my favourite place is the walled gardens: a brilliant arrangement of plants and flowers make for a very nice smelling place to visit when you are there. The kids playground is excellent as well, a good few hours can be spent here without getting bored.
What's not to love? Huge open space which still has room for a paddling pool, lido, duck ponds, cafe, basketball and tennis courts, cricket pitch, children's playground, one o'clock club and bike track. Even on the hottest day you'll find a quiet space.
