Don’t miss Southwark Council’s consultation about the next Burgess Park developments:

Cycling routes through Burgess  Park

Southwark Council is consulting on the new borough cycling strategy. The big idea is a cycle route down the middle of the borough which needs to cross Burgess Park. Consultation taking place on line, at events and through an inter-active map where people can comment on cycle related issues across the borough. The cycle consultation runs to the end of January.

Bridge to Nowhere history project

The Bridge to Nowhere heritage project involved loads of people to learn more about the history and heritage of Burgess Park. We have inaugurated the new Wells Way underpass artwork – a reminder of the main feature of the area which lead to the creation of the park – the Grand Surrey Canal. And we have launched the new Burgess Park Heritage Trail. Look out for the blue plaques around the park, use your smart phone either, so you can see how we’ve blended the old and the new to help you find out more about your local area.
