The secret garden is located on the D’Eynsford Estate in Camberwell. Located just off Kimpton Road, behind the KFC on Camberwell Church Street. The idea of a Community Garden arose as a way to generate greater community cohesion on the estate and as somewhere to relax and enjoy ourselves, as well as making new friends. The garden is situated on a previously derelict site, between Mary Datchelor Close and Camberwell Church Street. Work began on the garden in March 2009, pulling up the weeds and preparing the soil. The first funding from the O2 Community fund of £1000 built a green house. Then, at the end of 2010 they got £25,000 from the Cleaner, Greener, Safer fund at Southwark Council to completely redevelop the site and make it more attractive and accessible. The work was completed (more or less) by the Walworth Garden Farm in March and April 2010 and then they planted out hundreds of new bushes, flowers and vegetables.
The Secret Garden is currently open Saturdays 11am – 2pm and Sundays 10am – 12noon. Everyone is welcome to enjoy the space or have a go at gardening! There are always jobs to do to suit all ages and abilities.
Lettsom Gardens is a beautiful community garden bordered by Grove Park to the north and Grove Hill Road to the south. It is a popular and private amenity for the communities in both those streets and also more widely amongst Camberwell residents. The residents association host summer barbeques and bonfires there, providing special occasions for adults and children to meet new neighbours. The space is divided between woodland, allotments and a tarmac sports field. You'll be interested to know, Terry Jones lived on the opposite side of Lettsom Gardens for many years. He and the other members of Monty Python developed the scripts for the original series as they played five-a-side football there!
Loved by squirrels, locals on lunch and dog walkers, St Giles Churchyard lies behind the Anglican church between Wilson Road and Camberwell Grove.
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).
