We’re collecting memories from anyone who remembers the area before it was a park, anyone who used to live here or grew up in the area. We’d also like to hear about how things were in the early days of the park – how was it while it was being constructed, what did you like about it, what didn’t you like?! Please do contact us and let us know, or read peoples’ memories and add your own to our Memories Page
If you’d like to research more about the park, there are plenty of resources available, and we’d love to have more pages for the site.
Try the Southwark Local History Library in Borough High St, or the London Metropolitan Archives as a start. Do you have a neighbour, friend or relative who remembers the area? Why not record an interview with them, to add to the collection?
