Hillside Gardens Park is located between Hillside Road and Kingsmead Road in the Tulse Hill/Streatham Hill area of Lambeth. Much loved and well used by the local community this hidden gem is a green oasis for the neighbourhood. The early morning view over Leigham Vale is not to be missed and the park is used by old and young for dog walking, picnics, gardening and all the other things that parks are for! Hilllside Gardens has been awarded the prestigious Green Flag for every year since 2010.
As well as the green space to enjoy there are four tennis courts (booking details here), two multi use games areas for football and basketball, a kids play area, a table tennis table, an outdoor gym and an mini-allotment site.
One O’Clock Club
The park hosts a long running one o’clock club providing childcare for toddlers. In 2016 the management of the club was taken over by Hitherfield Primary School. They are having some issues with the bringing the building up to the standard they want but we hope it will reopen soon.
