Lewisham Council - Parks and open spaces

Parks and open spaces

 You are never far away from a green space in Lewisham, whether you wish to play sport, take a healthy stroll, get involved in conservation or find a place for quiet reflection.

View park locations on a map.

Seventeen of our parks and open spaces have been awarded Green Flag status, including a new Green Flag for Mountsfield Park, in the 2015 Keep Britain Tidy awards. The Flag shows that the park or open space boasts the highest possible standards, is beautifully maintained and has excellent facilities.


New drinking water fountains for two of our parks

Thirsty visitors to Ladywell Fields can now take a drink or refill their water bottles free of charge at a brand new water fountain. Beckenham Place Park will soon be getting its own fountain too.
