  • Visitor Information

Originally named Sydenham Recreation Ground, Mayow Park is Lewisham's oldest municipal park. Opened on 1st June 1878, an event to celebrate the park's 125th year anniversary was held in 2003. Home to the Mayow Park Bowls Club, there are two tennis courts and a refurbished children's playground within the green space. The central field is an ideal venue for walking, running and generally relaxing in the peaceful tree lined surroundings. The opening of Mayow Park on 1st June 1878 was a big occasion; ten thousand people filled the park, and several hundred children marched through the area, accompanied by bands and a horse-drawn carriage. A marble drinking fountain marks the event with the following words inscribed, 'Erected by subscription in recognition of the services of the Rev W Taylor Jones MA in acquiring this ground for the public, 1 June 1878'.
