More about Home Park Adventure Playground

Home Park was originally built by youth workers with funding from the Big Lottery. The current structure was rebuilt and opened by the Mayor of Lewisham after it was destroyed by fire in the 2011 riots.

Located at the top of Home Park, after which it is named, the playground attracts young people from the local community as well as those passing through the park. It is regularly named in the Annual Park's survey as the best place in the area. Its long narrow and ingenious design cleverly fits multiple swings, cargo nets, a zip wire, a slide and two indoor areas. It provides a range of challenges and activities for ages 8 (numerical) to 19, and up to 25 with special needs.

When the weather allows and the playground gets crowded, the staff spread outside the playground to make great use of the park. The APG regularly offers a bouncy castle, football, rounders and other games and sports.

When the weather is less than ideal the indoor cabins give young people a space for cooking, playing football, pool, dance and the opportunity to take part in workshops. The latter includes a bike maintenance program.

This long standing partnership with the police and the team at the APG enables many young people to learn about bike repair and how to rebuild and customise donated old bikes. The project is exemplary of why Home Park is so much more than an adventure playground.

Accessibility

The adventure playground is partially accessible and the building is fully accessible. Please contact staff to discuss any specific needs.
