Had to visit Peckham Rye Park in march. It's got a lovely lake and easy parking. The park is well maintained. If in the area I'd recommend a visit.

Great out door space to loosen up. Easy to find. I ran from East Dulwich to the park using google maps. I met several people running and happy pets mostly dogs enjoying the free space. Towards onside of the park are manicured gardens which must look beautiful in summer however understandably some parts were dry as winter approaches its end. The gardens have benches and there are bowling greens as well. There appeared to be some maintanance contruction going on. A recommended place to go if you are in the area and need to unwind. There is no admission fee.

I've lived alongside Peckham Rye Park for over 20 years, so feel like it's a part of my neighbourhood.

It's a dog walkers paradise, a weekend football venue, has play areas for smaller and not-so-small kids, a few gated 'dog-free' areas, and boasts some of the rarest specimens of mature trees in the UK, including one of only two 'Cut-Leaf Lime trees.

The river Peck rises, then sinks underground within the park.

To the front (North) of the Park is Peckham Rye Common, which is another huge lawn space, with an Aussie rules football pitch (oval) and a full size Irish hurling pitch.

It is allegedly the site of Queen Bodicea's final battle against the Romans.

Surrounded by a number of decent Pubs, and close to Peckham High Street and East Dulwich's Lordship Lane.

Weird thing is, even when it's busy in Peckham Rye Park, it's never ever crowded.

Well kept and maintained by the excellent garden staff, it is routinely winning green flags year on year.

Beautiful park with an artificial lake what is quite old. There is Japanese garden, wildlife, skatepark, playground, a cafe and great place for walks. Lots to see and explore!
