Lewisham Council - Deptford Park

Deptford Park

Find information about Deptford Park.

Deptford Park offers beautiful greenery in a heavily urbanised area of Lewisham.


In 1884, the site of Deptford Park, originally a market garden, was sold by the Evelyn family to the London County Council.

The park was officially opened to the public on 7 June 1897.


In recent years the park has undergone two phases of improvement works, which have included new:

  • boundary railings
  • brick pillars
  • gates
  • children's playground
  • formal paved area
  • seating.

You can access the park from Evelyn Street.


Facilities include a:

  • football pitch
  • play area
  • wide path around the edge of the park, offering a pleasant walk
  • toilet – including disabled facilities – open Mondays and Fridays from 8am–4pm.
