This is a well used facility. At least in the summer, there are usually a few people using it as I pass on my way to work. But on this chillier autumn morning it was not being used.
Southwark Park
A public park in Southwark, south-east London covering an area of about 33 hectares. Facilities include a cafe, art gallery, tennis courts, sports centre (privately operated) and a bandstand. There was an athletics track but by 2015 that lay derelict.

It is listed grade 2 as a historic park, being created by act of Parliament in 1865. The land had previously been occupied by market gardens, factories and houses. Designed by the architect Vulliamy and landscape designer Alexander McKenzie, Southwark Park opened to the public on 9 June 1869. (extract from statutory listing).
