Healthy lifestyle schemes in parks and open spaces

We are working in partnership with other organisations to improve resident's health and wellbeing through conservation and landscape maintenance work in their local community. Below is a list of schemes that are currently being held across the Borough.

Brook Lane Community Garden

Brook Lane is a community garden which provides a facility for people of all ages to come and participate in gardening and landscape management sessions to improve their mental and physical wellbeing through growing projects and learning about and creating wildlife habitats.

The scheme is a joint venture between partner organisations such as Certitude and JustB as well as a facility for school session learning environmental studies. If you are a school or represent a community group please contact us for further information.

Green Gyms

Green Gyms aim to provide practical conservation activities (from gentle weeding through to the construction of new features) with an emphasis on health and fitness. There are currently two that operate within the borough:

  • Penge Green Gym: This meets in Winsford Gardens, Garden Road, London, SE20 7RN every Wednesday 11am-2pm. For more information please visit the Penge Green Gym website .
