Brockwell Lido Car park proposals

Brockwell Lido car park proposals

Many people use the car park by the Lido – Lido users, Park users, local shoppers and even commuters. Some people abuse it too, parking in disabled bays without a blue badge and parking across the marked bays. Fusion, who lease the car park, want to improve access conditions for bona fide Lido and Park users and there’s been a long standing effort, over literally years, to find a solution to the problems that have arisen. It’s clear that there is no completely satisfactory solution that is affordable (for the avoidance of doubt, Fusion are not trying to make money out of the car park – they want Park and Lido users to get a fair deal by deterring abuse), or it would have been adopted long ago.
 

 

Road into Lido carpark remains closed - nearly done?

As of this afternoon, the carpark into the Lido remained closed. It looks nearly done but as you can see from the picture composite, there are still post holes to sort out. At least people have figured out a way to come in from the street through the fencing (pic 2, counterclockwise from top)! Saves the long walk round from the Lido Cafe!

OTHELLO in Brockwell Park from Tuesday June 12th!

The Faction Theatre Co. will perform open-air Shakespeare in Brockwell Park from Tuesday. The Faction recently got four stars in The Guardian for their productions at the New Diorama Theatre and The Independent's review said "Terrifically fresh... they make you feel you are hearing the lines for the first time."

Brockwell Park volunteers Openday afternoon

Brockwell Park Volunteers Open Afternoon this Saturday, 2pm @ Brockwell Hall!

This year there’s more than ever going on in Brockwell Park, and more than ever for Park-lovers to get involved in.

Help is always needed and we’ve found there are some areas where we particularly need specialist help, or a few more pairs of hands. 

So, we are holding a ‘Volunteers Openday’, where committee members from local groups who support the Park will be available to talk about a host of volunteer opportunities. Everything from fundraising, to design, to cake baking, to online skills, to horticulture and wildlife preservation to... well, you name it we need help with it! 

 

Brockwell Park drainage works begin

As you can see from the 3 photo panel (thanks to Giles Gibson for these), Brockwell Park's drainage works have begun as of today, April 24th, affecting the roadway into the park. This also means no carpark availability for at least a week. See the Lambeth notice below for further detail - this has been made available at Lido reception.

Brockwell Lido Spa Report! up to & including March 20th

OK, so this is getting a bit boring, but just to inform you that as of last night, the Lido spa's steam room remained out of order. This was announced by display in reception. What was not announced is that the hydropool was also down and no one could be found to explain why. Consequently the sauna was packed out. Lately it seems one thing or another is out of order in the spa and on a continuing basis, so it would probably be worth your while to ring Brockwell Lido first (020 7274 3088) before coming along if you're only after a spa session ... or first poke your head inside the spa area to see what's functioning if coming in from the gym.
