Beckenham Place Park

Facts

Location Client Cost Completion
Beckenham, London London Borough of Lewisham £5m 2019

Project details

Beckenham Place Park is Lewisham’s largest green space at 96 hectares and is home to a wide range of facilities.

Considered to be one of the finest wildlife sites in the borough, it contains ancient woodland as well as a variety of other habitats and is a Local Nature Reserve.

We were commissioned to improve the park’s facilities and attract a larger and more diverse audience. The council was awarded £5m of Heritage Lottery Funding to support a comprehensive restoration scheme looking at specific site enhancements to focus best use of the budget. These included improving the entrances, creating site-wide routes, enhancing the historic parkland and gardens, restoring a large lake and associated wetlands, and conducting a comprehensive review of the tree stock.

Now complete the park has been transformed into the largest public park in South East London, reconnecting the park with its surrounding communities and providing much needed high-quality open green space.
