Sitting right next to a busy junction, Camberwell Green is a small park that is often overlooked. Until the late 18th century, Camberwell was a rural village. The green used to play host to a rather notorious fair held for the Feast of St Giles. This became an increasingly boisterous affair lasting up to three days, until eventually, in 1856, the more 'well to do' residents put an end to it.
Lying between St Giles and Benhill Roads, it was laid out in the mid-Victorian era and is overlooked by some of the loveliest houses from the period in Camberwell. Popular with locals and staff from Southwark Town Hall, the facilities include free tennis courts and a children's play area.
Myatt's Fields Park, on the border of Southwark and Lambeth, is named after a market gardener called Myatt, reputedly famous for his strawberries. Today it features tennis courts, a bandstand and ball games area, and a new playground sporting a wet play zone (dog-free of course).
