Playground closed for refurbishment from 18th September

Lambeth Council have provided the following update:

“The playground will be closed for refurbishment from 18th September for approximately 12 weeks.

The new playground will feature all new exciting and challenging play equipment, safety surfacing, interactive and imaginative play for all ages and abilities.

Following public consultation during June and July the design has been revised to:

      • include a replacement for the very popular trampoline;
      • install additional benches (including some with backs);
      • incorporate more natural materials (including wooden benches);
      • incorporate planting for shade around the perimeter;
      • reuse equipment at other sites where possible.

We also received positive feedback on the proposals for the landscaping in front of the kiosk and eastern entrance. There will be a further update when these proposals have been finalised.

If you have any questions please contact project manager Rob Kelly at”

The original proposals can still be viewed on the Lambeth Council website here.

The Friends of Ruskin Park welcomes Lambeth’s investment in the new playground and the area in front of the kiosk and hope to see further improvements to this corner of the park. We’re pleased Lambeth has listened to feedback including adding more seating and a new trampoline. We have continued to ask for any cost effective ways of providing more shade within the playground, not just round the perimeter.
