Let's play at Forster Park!

We want to improve Forster Park, and make it a real destination for the people of Lewisham and Bromley.

Forster Memorial Park in Lewisham is a fantastic historical space, and well used by the local community. There is a real community spirit in the surrounding area, and lots of children/ young people, who need somewhere to play, without having to make the car journey/ very long walk to Mountsfield Park. This park was originally part woodland, part fields, and owned by the Forster family. In 1919 Lord Forster, a local resident and Governor General of Australia between 1920 and 1925, made a gift of part of his estate as a memorial to his two sons, Alfred and John, who were both killed during the First World War. The ancient woodland provides peace and tranquility in a heavily urbanised area, and we want to make it better, but we need your help!

What we'll deliver:

  • Fit new playground equipment in the older children area
  • Fit new playground equipment in the toddler area

Why it's a great idea:

It's a great idea because children need to play, and they should be able to walk/ ride/ scoot to their closest area to be able to do this. There are several schools in the local area, and providing a convenient and safe place for them to be will mean they spend less time indoors, and more time outdoors exploring their local environment. By improving the park we will also inspire a childs love of nature and history.
