About the Park and Nature Garden
Hillside Gardens Park is located between Hillside Road and Kingsmead Road in the London Borough of Lambeth, in South West London. Within easy walking distance you can discover the Park’s best kept secret, the delightful Palace Road Nature Garden. The park is currently under serious pressure from council budget cuts. Please join our email list to find out more about our efforts to keep the park and nature garden open and in the best possible condition!
Both locations are much cherished, and frequented by a broad range of people. They offer a perfect balance between nature, play and physical recreation with enviable amenities available for all.
Within the Park there is a one o’clock club for parents and carers with toddlers and a playground for young children. Those wanting to work up a sweat have the use of 2 two football and basketball courts, four tennis courts (with an active social tennis programme) and recently installed outdoor fitness equipment. The park offers both a dog run and a dog free picnic area, several flower beds that our Horticultural Club help maintain and many mature trees, flowering shrubs and flower borders. There is something for everyone in Hillside Gardens Park and this has helped make it a vital centre for the community which has been recognized by the award of the prestigious Green Flag for the last four years running.
The Friends of Hillside Gardens plays a valuable role in the upkeep and planning of the park. It aims to promote activities such as sports and family fun days. It forms an interface between the residents and Lambeth Council to discuss maintenance and development plans. It is freely open to any park user who wishes to join and you will be welcomed with open arms.
Quarterly meetings of the Friends take place at St Simon and St Jude Church Hall just off Hillside Road.
