Burgess Park

Chumleigh Street
go to website


This park was created to help transform one of Southwark's most densely populated areas following the devastation caused during the Second World War Blitz.

For the next 40 years the park grew steadily, taking in hundreds of demolished dwellings, 30 streets, a few factories, churches and the filling in of an old canal.

This modern park continues to develop. It offers newly created facilities such as the Burgess Youth Sports Pavilion with its 'state of the art', eco-designed changing rooms, café and all-weather football pitches. Alongside there are unique features such as Chumleigh's World Gardens and a fishing lake.
