Anyone know when it's re-opening? Sure it was meant to've been weeks ago. It's not as if SE1 is blessed with a mass of alternative green space - and today is the kind of day you miss it!

Thanks Juanita - it is looking pretty good, but it's sure taken a while!

It might be opened before then .... I just know the official opening by Southwark Council is 14 April - will ask Gillian from Southwark Council when I meet her this evening.

Half of the park (nearest the church) will be open as soon as Southwark Council's contractors remove the fencing. The other half of the park will be closed as the stone mason is still repairing the monuments. The entire park will be spruced up by the council's parks department w/c 10 April, in time for the official opening on Saturday 14 April

The churchyard is being officially opened by Southwark Council 1pm tomorrow. St Mary's Church are holding a small fair to celebrate 12-4pm. More details in the What's On section of this website.
