Burgess Park, manmade knoll and bank slide
One of the geometric knolls on the north side of the park has a long path up its ridge with a slide down the short slope into the new play area. In the background is a slab of the Aylesbury estate and, beyond it, the Shard near London Bridge station.
Burgess Park

Burgess Park, in inner South East London, is unusual as it is a large park created on a "brownfield" site.

The area was previously occupied by streets, houses and light industry as well as a branch of the Surrey Canal. Plans to create a park here started in the 1940s. At the time, there was very little green open space in this part of inner city London.

The park gradually grew, but in rather haphazard fashion with decaying, abandoned roads still cutting into the park. In 2011-2012 the park closed for about a year so that major work could be done to regenerate the park.
