Hello, does anyone know anything about Brockwell Park? I am intrigued as I can see it on multimap but having walked around the area (close by Blythe Hill Fields) I cannot see any entrance. Is it a private park?

Brockwell Park does exist, but it is near Herne Hil
Brockwell Park

Brockley Hill Park does appear to be a private park but it might be best to keep quiet about it otherwise it will be turned into 50 blocks of flats along with all other 'brownfield' sites in London.

Yes, you are right I meant Brockley Hill Park.

It would indeed be a shame to have it developed, though I must admit to envy of those who have access to their very own private park. Particularly as it looks to have many trees, unlike Blythe Hill Fields which is a bit barren. And of couse One Tree Hill which has lovely views but is not as lovely as it could be.

What would make One Tree Hill lovelier?

I once got into it (Brockley Hill Park) when one of the houses was a building site - it had some lovely trees and also tennis courts.

I think it's protected under some form of complicated trust. But I could be wrong. I picked this up from one of the residents at a summer party in the park itself but the wine was flowing....

Nice spot although impossible to get in without going through someone's back garden.

At the Blythe Hill Fields fair last week there was a display of old maps of the surrounding area. I thought I saw that the park had been originally set out to house a rather grand church and grounds.
