At this year’s virtual Lambeth Country Show, the Friends of Brockwell Park has launched an accessibility section of its website.
A free leaflet of the map will also be available at Brockwell Hall and other local outlets.
This section of the Friends’ website has a map of Brockwell Park, with detailed guidance notes on how it can be more accessible for all, whether you are disabled, have reduced mobility, care for an adult or child with a special educational need or disability (SEND), or just want to get out to improve your physical health and wellbeing.
Features of the map include information about travel to the park, toilets, food and drink, benches, ‘touchpoints’ (sensory experiences) and two suggested strolls in level areas.
The accessibility page represents two years’ work of a team led by Lucia Daniels and Laura Morland, and an investment of £2000 by the Friends.
Peter Bradley, Chair, Friends of Brockwell Park, said:
The Friends hope this website and leaflet will quickly achieve its aim, to increase access to Brockwell Park for more people. Thanks to all who helped bring it about.
This initiative is supported by the Lambeth Parks Department and by Brockwell Park Community Partners.
The Friends will post the free leaflet if people send a stamped, addressed envelope (no stamp, no leaflet) to: FOBP Access Leaflet, PO Box 27810, London SE24 9WN.
