Beyond the vibrant streets and charming cafés, lie many green spaces that empower residents to embrace an active and health-conscious lifestyle. The following spaces offer ideal opportunities to soak up nature's beauty, while staying active and energised in the busy capital.

However you get active, Bermondsey Spa Gardens is a haven where an active lifestyle blends seamlessly with the serenity of nature.

Southwark Park
Southwark Park is a sprawling playground for those seeking an array of recreational activities. Home to a sports and athletics centre, locals can benefit from a variety of ways to stay fit, whether it’s on the 400m running track, the 50-station gym, or in one of their extensive classes offered in the fitness studio. In the park itself, visitors can engage in outdoor workouts on its expansive lawns, jog around the ponds, or get together on the tennis courts or football pitch.

Tanner Street Park
Tanner Street Park, though smaller in size, is a favourite particularly among tennis enthusiasts, whether seasoned players or new learners. This charming green space welcomes residents to pick up a racquet, have a stroll, or enjoy a workout or stretch session on the grass. Families can enjoy quality time while kids burn off energy on the playground too.

King's Stairs Gardens
Perched along the River Thames, King's Stairs Gardens offers a refreshing blend of scenic beauty and opportunities to get active in the great outdoors. As the name suggests, the gardens feature steps that provide a popular setting for cardio workouts. Climb the steps to elevate your heart rate while enjoying stunning riverside views. The well-maintained pathways encourage leisurely strolls and joggers to soak up the tranquil ambiance.

Bermondsey's green spaces serve as testaments to the neighbourhood's commitment to fostering an active and vibrant community.
