Welcome to Vauxhall Park!
On 7 July we celebrate the 125th Anniversary of the Opening of the Park by HRH The Prince of Wales (the future Edward VII) who was accompanied by many members of his family and was greeted on arrival by guard of honour by the Surrey Regiment.
Vauxhall Park was opened on 7th July 1890 by Albert, Prince of Wales (read more about our history here). It is located in the London Borough of Lambeth on the South Lambeth Road (A203) at its junction with Fentiman Road (B301) and comprises about eight and a half acres of land. In 2015 we celebrate 125 years of Vauxhall Park and hope you will join us as we celebrate later in the year.
The Park facilities include a playground catering for aged 10 and under, the One O’Clock Club (see”Essential info”, right, for opening hours), a multi use games area predominantly for basketball/netball, Parco Cafe, two tennis courts, chess tables (bring your own pieces, or use those in Parco Cafe) in the lavender garden, the Vauxhall Motors Centenary Lavender Garden, rose pergola, the model village, an orchard, two fenced dog areas, a human sundial (in the lavender garden) and the Oval Montessori Nursery School.
Vauxhall Park has been awarded the prestigious Green Flag Award for six years in a row. The Green Flag Award Scheme recognises and rewards the best green spaces in the country, meaning that Vauxhall Park is one of the best of 1,452 green spaces in the country!
We are delighted to announce that our 30 year old playground is to be replace. Plans for the new playground were presented at our Summer Fair and Kinnear Lanscape Architects gathered feedback to help us finalise the plans. We hope construction will start this autumn, once the Summer holidays have finished. You can still comment on the plans by following this link:
