In New Cross we’re lucky to have a number of parks and green open spaces only a short walk from the ‘Kender Triangle’.
On your daily walk, why not try out some of the routes set out below? Unfortunately, you will not be able to play on any playground equipment. Currently, parks must only be used once a day for daily exercise and remember to follow government guidelines on social distancing at all times.
