South Park Gardens is a much loved and well-used park in Wimbledon in the London Borough of Merton. It was opened in September 1901 and was restored to its Victorian glory in June 2009 thanks to a grant from the Heritage Lottery Fund. Click here to read more. 

The Friends of South Park Gardens is a registered charity, working for the restoration and improvement of South Park Gardens for the benefit of the community. We’re a small committee of dedicated volunteers and trustees.

Our events are all about getting the different parts of the local community involved in the Gardens. The Easter Egg Hunt (2003) was the first event FSPG created. This was followed swiftly by the Fireworks in 2004 and then with the aid of the Heritage Lottery Fund and the Park Warden we started the Teddy Bear’s Picnic, the Over 60s’ Tea and supported the Music Festival. We also took over the organisation of the annual picnic, which was first started in the 1970s!

The events are vital to us as fundraisers but more importantly they involve local people in the Gardens.

**Please note: changes to dates and times sometimes occur at short notice, be sure to always check with the contacts for the course before attending.  Thank you for understanding.**
