About Us

We are a voluntary group, established in 1999, whose aim is to protect and enhance Vauxhall Park as a place of freedom, recreation and enjoyment for all sections of the local comunity. We publish a regular and interesting newsletter, and work closely with The London Borough of Lambeth and its contractors.

We are recruiting members and have set up a series of working groups dealing with a diverse range of subjects including children's play areas, flowers and shrubs, conservation, sports and games etc. Our annual membership costs just £3 for individuals, £2 for the unwaged and £5 for family membership. Please print and complete this Membership Form and send it with your cheque to the address shown.

Thanks to Our Supporters

The Friends of Vauxhall Park also welcome donations both large and small to help with our work and would like to thank all past donors of benches, trees and other equipment in the park. For this year, the Friends of Vauxhall Park would particularly like to acknowledge the following contributions:

  • The Oval Montessori Nursery - for the planting of a new mulberry tree, the organisation of the Easter Egg Hunt, storage of equipment for many years and the continued sponsorship of the children's area for our summer fair.
  • CLS Holdings Ltd - for becoming our first corporate member, and providing face painting at our summer fair along with volunteer stewards
  • New Covent Garden Market - for supplying flowers for our stall at the summer fair.
  • The Vauxhall Society - for their contribution towards our study into the impacts of the Bondway scheme which helped our case at the successful planning inquiry.
  • Parco Cafe
  • Lambeth officers, especially our parks officer Mickey Penney, for invaluable advice and maintenance work; and
  • All our many volunteers and members for their continued support.

At present, the Friends of Vauxhall Park are looking for sponsorship of the flower beds, revamping the tennis court and other general areas of maintenance. We also welcome new volunteers to help with activities and general organisation in the Park.
