A large and popular Edwardian park between Camberwell, Brixton and Herne Hill, Ruskin Park contains many heritage features. Ruskin Park is one of Lambeth’s 12 Green Flag Award-winning parks.


The children’s playground is designed for children up to the age of 12 and is very popular with local families. It is fenced off and dog free.


Paddling Pool

This is a much loved and well used facility for local families. The paddling pool is filled from the spring bank holiday weekend at the end of May until mid-September. It was a very hot and busy day when we visited and we noticed that the water looked very green.

Xavier’s review  “The playground was OK, but there was too many children and no zip wire!”
