Slade Gardens Adventure Playground has been a valuable part of the local community for families for almost 50 years.
Located in Stockwell, the space was established by a Second World War Bomb, leaving local residents to get together with Lambeth Council to build it into a playground due to the lack of facilities of children and young people. In 1999, the playground became independently managed by local residents and a voluntary committee was formed and the playground was set up as a new charity.
The playground understands the challenges that families face in finding suitable play provision for their children and the playground is happy to provide assistance to make sure all our users have equal opportunities. Slade Gardens was proud to be named London's Adventure Playground of the Year 2003.
