cafe: there is one on Grange Road
just by the entrance to the park.
toilets: all public loos have long since been closed to avoid 'unpleasant' social activities.
play area: weren't there swings and roundabouts in the old park?
Don't get me wrong, I wish the new park the best of luck. I'm just unconvinced that it will have been money well spent - when the cafe and creche are not patronised, the loos are a den of iniquity and the play area is neglected. This isn't the city where parks are filled at lunchtime by green-craving city workers. This is Southwark.
