Deptford Park offers beautiful greenery in a heavily urbanised area of Lewisham. 


In 1884, the site of Deptford Park, originally a market garden, was sold by the Evelyn family to the London County Council.

The park was officially opened to the public on 7 June 1897.


In recent years the park has undergone two phases of improvement works, which have included new:

  • boundary railings

  • brick pillars

  • gates

  • children's playground

  • formal paved area

  • seating

You can access the park from Evelyn Street.


Facilities include a:

  • football pitch

  • outdoor gym

  • play area

  • wide path around the edge of the park, offering a pleasant walk


The opening hours of the toilets are currently reduced due to COVID-19.

The toilets are open Monday and Friday, 11am–4pm.
