- Visitor Information
Southwark's largest park, Burgess Park, is at the heart of the borough, stretching all the way across from Walworth to the Old Kent Road. It was originally created from a bombsite after the Bliz; a multimillion-pound facelift in 2012 has given it a new lease of life with a funky adventure playground, play fountains, go-karting, and the Burgess Park BMX Track. Sports facilities include football pitches, cricket pitches and tennis courts. Recent landscaping has created rolling hills and sunken gardens, while making the most of existing features such as the fishing lake and historic industrial reamins. It's a great place for walking, running, rollerblading and cycling, with paths along the old canal (now filled in) carrying on all the way down to Peckham.
